    I today picked up a 12 990R and when doing my self "what is all this" orientation; I see there are three loose wire connetions in the large storage box under the seat.

    1 has a white end with 6 "tubes" and black caps?
    1 has two wires with a white end with shrinkwrap covering it
    1 has two wires with a white connetor on the end with nothing to plug into

    I've looked through alot of the info and haven't seen anythig about them and saw nothing in the manual. It shows the one low octane connection but not these 3 big ones??

    --Also - I'm guessing it isn't much of a problem since they're there but any info on sealing/waterproofing the electrics in the bottom at the battery and large connector running above it, wires on the side? Cover in Dielectric grease?

    I'll be looking through the most helpful stuff for a while as I learn this thing and would put up a pic but it looks like every other 2010-2012 new 990r...for now anyway.

    Third one would be the Ignition Curve Plug-In Connector?
