Anyone know what this is, looking at the wires, it doesn't look to be OEM

Check to see if it's attached to the frame or a ground.
It looks to me like a grounding block.

Thanks, I would have figured it out myself if I wasn't feeling so bad. I have a broken shoulder, so I don't spend much time by the bike, then I have to get away from it and go sit down.

That looks like something worth keeping, if you use it or not. I really like the idea, but I'd do away with those crimped connectors, ditch the plastic covers, crimp and solder, cover with shrink tube.
