Stupidist thread ever

OK so I am on a roll obviously, this shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of my most idiodic posts so far.

Here is an empty plug adjacent to the temp sensor and oil sensor under the throttle bodies. I can't see anything this would plug into, all other wiring plugs are accounted for. Is this for the mystery missing BMW bullshit sensor?

FFS!!

Take your bike to California and ask for the missing emissions equipment so your lonely plug will have a purpose.

I'm gullible enough to believe you, or tell me I let the durn thing fall out and try to sell me a used one

Dunno about you, when I see an empty socket I want to find something to plug into it (must be a male thing)

Yeah, the fun we could've had. Have you go searching for something then ask your Dealer.... The thread title means you're just asking for it!

There are only 2 frame wiring harnesses for the 650/800 bikes, ABS yes or no. There's only 1 engine wiring harness. Therefore ALL the engine harnesses are Cali Emissions enabled although only the US uses that plug.

Best no look at your car too hard.

Its a shame to have a perfectly good unused plug

My cage, oy I am approaching getting it fixed, and paying for it too, as in, paying a shop to do it. By do it I mean replace the rear differential, the propeller shaft, and the drivers side seat belt. Rear differential leaks after being hung up on a rock, actually it was a water bar, a big one, all four tires spinning. Propeller shaft bent on same water bar. Seat belt, well that locked on a different trip, going too fast over pot holes. Insurance company says I collided with the road, cage company says the curtain airbag was a legitimate use. Cage company says they can replace them for $5k, or course they also replace all the interior and seatbelts too, which locked. I ask myself, do I really want to replace airbags that blow going over potholes? The seatbelt, yeah tough for the wife to use, locked, she can't see over the dash.

Yep that was some dumb-ass trip over a whole series of waterbars, culminating in the giant bar that I had to jack up each individual wheel to put rocks underneath to get home...poorly I might add, with bent propeller shaft. So yeah, after get this, more than 5 years, I've finally found the same brand cage that I can buy those parts from at an auto wrecker, way cheaper. So my truck, well it was my divorce present and I haven't treated it too well since I got it.

Anyway, the next recent dumb-ass thing was installing my valve cover over the cam movement sensor wire, and severing the wire. Only I just discovered this last week, after almost 3 years or so. Never noticed an issue until last fall. Well maybe it ran weird once and a while. Interesting, I really wonder how it operated all those years, when I took the valve cover off the wire just separated.

Stupid, dumb-ass things. Let's get this party started

Thanks, I guess...Its not a competition...I just live by a mantra of stubbornness. Skill...when you put it that way, skill is highly overrated if you don't have a good hammer and troubleshooting persistence. How much skill does it take to drop off your bike at the dealership?

Plus beating the shit out of things is good therapy (and won't get you arrested...unless its been filmed and can be used against your character in an unrelated case - I'm assuming!)
