Default Unused connector

I have an unused connector with 1 red and 1 black wire. The red wire comes from the positive battery cable; the black wire comes from the ground side of the starter relay. the connector is white. Any clues?

Maybe someone had a battery tender before

I am not the original owner, I just bought the bike last month. Here are some pix. It also has a PCIII Serial installed. The first picture shows the connetor laying beside oil filler cap.

Think Jimmy2 has it right for a charger, with those two connections it can't run anything on the bike unless it was for some 12v accessory that didn't come with it.

Looks just like the Battery Tender Connector.....except some have the black cover with a snap on lid.

Yeah, based on the gauge of the wire, I would guess battery tender connection too...

I can look under my seat tonight if you want to confirm this....I will post up again tonight.

I agree, it is from some type of battery connector but not from the brand Battery Tender, they look totally different.

The black wire at the starter relay powers the starter motor. I don't have a MC alarm system and different ones work in different ways so maybe that's what its for, to sense the key is 'on' indicating the owner is starting the bike and not a crook, and from that allowing the bike to start normally without the need to enter a code or press a remote-button or some such. Or maybe its for some other item that wants to know when the starter motor is cranking (its not the decompression solenoid). Or its remotely possible that someone installed something incorrectly and abandoned it in place. In any event, removing the connector won't do any harm and happily the wiring diagram can be checked to see there's no such stock connector at that point.

Thanks for everyones advice. arizonawarrior, is it being used as a bypass to the relay ground since it basically bridges the relay for whatever component is plugged in to it?
