I have not a clue. Do you get a check engine light? If not its probably not too important.

Bikebandit.com has some pretty good schematics, including wiring, you could probably find out for certain there, but it almost looks like an air pressure sensor.

I don't really know, but my first guess would be an O2 sensor.....

Its some CA emissions garbage. Unless you bought your bike in California it should be empty.

It is a UK spec bike and absolutely no running problems, I was just curious. I have a haynes manual with a wiring diagram in it but couldn't be bothered tracing the wires thought the forum might have the answers (as it usually does)

Cheers

It is used on Calif. bikes only, It is for emission control catalyst. Tape or zip tie it out of the way so it does not come in contact with the hot exhaust pipe.

Yup, what he said. They all have them, nothing to worry about.
