    Hello Guys, first time 990 user here. Was double checking the wirings on the bike and the PO seems like they tinkered around with some sensors. Found this sensor dangling around at the front of the bike and have no clue as to what it is or where it’s supposed to be.

    Does anybody know what this is?

    I assume it's a 990? That looks like a MAP sensor, but I don't think the bike would run if it was disconnected from the inlet.

    It's the ambient pressure sensor. It should fit on a tab on the right side of the cockpit frame, pipe facing down.
    There are other two like this plugged to the manifolds.

    That's the cloudy or sunny day detector. It is also a mountain detector.
