I don't have a clue. Everything seems to be working fine so I can't figure out what purpose it has:
It's in front of the tank on the right side and looks like two spade terminals mounted on a small shaft that appears to come from under the tank. The spade terminal on the left is bent toward the one on the right. Should there be something plugged in here? What am I missing?

No friggin clue. I just looked on both sides of both Harleys... Not there on either of mine.
Might help if you post year and model. No way to remember what each member rides.

Great. Thanks for checking yours. Maybe the previous owner removed an ejection button. ;)

Or a custom kill switch? If your brave, short them together to see what does and does not work.
(I aint that brave with my bikes)... :alien:

I think I'd tweak the bent one out a bit so it's clear oh the other one, just in case!
There's no voltage at either terminal so it should be okay even if they were to make contact. I guess whatevebr it is, it needs 12 v supplied to one of the spades. I'm not messing with it until I find out what it does.

On my 07 ultra classic it's connected to the throttle cable for the cruise control. Pretty sure it's the release control for when you hit a brake pedal.

Thanks, Everything about the cruise control is working perfectly so what does it do? Are there wires connected to the spade terminals?

That's it! Thank you. I'm guessing it must have been bad on my bike and the previous owner had a replacement module installed. You can see the yellow and white wires running to the module in the first photo. Thanks again.

t's the switch that shuts off the Cruise Control when you roll the throttle forward. Mine failed on my 03 RKC a few years ago and I disconnected it. Now I have to stop the CC by front brake lever, rear brake peddal, clutch lever, or turn it off at the switch on the left handlebar controls.

I've had to kill the cruise the same way since I bought the bike. Didn't miss killing it by rolling throttle forward and don't think I'd want to do that any way.
Thanks for the pics.

I like having it operational on my SGS and miss it while riding the RKC. I just lightly tap the front brake. I'll replace the whole thing one day, hopefully BEFORE the cables snap, lol.....

I hear ya. I think I'd get tired of resetting the cruise every time I accelerated to pass the old granny drivers around here.
