Metal part bolted to rear fender???

Postby bcnv1100 » Wed Sep 07, 2011 7:36 am



Quick question since my manual is at home, i have a 81 1100 standard and took off the rear fender last night, attached to it was the rear lights and tucked under the seat there was a small silver part mounted to the fender with two wires connected to it, anybody know what that was??? This is my week of not needing to ride the bike to work everyday so i'm trying to get as much maintenance done on it as i can so i'm sure i'll have a few more posts on here Thanks again to all on this site!!!

Not ringing a bell here, either. Do you have a picture of it you can post? What color are the wires connected to it?
