"homeless" 2 wire connection plug on a 2002 Triumph TT600

Hi, I am working on a friends 2002 Triumph TT600 and cannot find where a 2 wire electrical connector hooks up. The connector itself is plastic with a "snap wire" lock - grey in color and the wires are yellow/orange & brown/white. It is located directly under the airbreather/cleaned box. If anyone can help me please responed to fourhoffs@cox.net

Thanks in advance!

    I have looked a the wiring diagram / service manual that I downloaded on line before posting this question. It definately is NOT the Inlet Air Temp. Sensor but has a similar type connector and is located underneath the air cleaner box. The connector is plastic / 2 pin with a metal "lock" mechanism and the 2 wires are yellow/orange strip & brown/white stripe. Any additional help? Thank you

    Hi, thanks for your input. I just looked at the bike again and there is ONLY one of these grey color connectors that is "homeless". I could not find ANY of these type wire / color combinations on the Triumph wiring diagram. I am awaiting a new fuel pump for the bike so I don't yet know what it "does or doesn't do". I did get the bike running by putting a little fuel in the throttle bodies and the tach worked. I'm hoping to come across a Triumph "expert" who might be able to tell me where this is meant to connect to or that perhaps is for an "alarm system" or California emissions deal that this bike does not have / need. Again...any new thoughts are appreciated.

  • fourhoffs Feb 10, 2009

    Thanks again for the input...key "off" zero volts...key "on" 12 volts DC. Sorry for not mentioning this earlier...

  • fourhoffs Feb 10, 2009

    I cheched again for a "home" for the mystery connection. No luck! The wire lead is abour 9" long (the same as the connection that goes to the tank fuel pump). There is just nothing I can see to connect this to. It can't reach anywhere near the rear seat nor are there any electrical connectors that are "vacant".

  • fourhoffs Feb 10, 2009

    Ok and thanks but does this mean that my "homeless connection" is NOT for an alarm system? There is no "cap" over the end of this open connection.

  • fourhoffs Feb 10, 2009

    OK...I really appreciate everyones input but I have not heard a response to my original question. If anyone has a factual response and knows specifically about the 2002 Truimph TT600...please let me know. Thanks

I believe the connector goes to the California emisions junk. If you don't have a California motor, it should be orphaned. I have the same thing on my TT and that is what is according to the wiring data.

THE CONNECTOR IS FOR THE MANUFACTURER TO PLUG INTO TO RE MAP IT, OR TO FIND FAULT CODES, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM TRYING TO FIND WHERE IT CAME FROM. AFTER 2 DAYS OF WONDERING, I FOUND OUT FROM A DISC I BOUGHT OFF EBAY. I ALSO GOT IT CONFIRMED WITH A FRIEND WHO WORKS AT A TRIUMPH DEALERS.

Check And See If INSIDE on the Terminals of this Plug are Clean as If It Were Hooked up Before . Some Have Shunt Connecters that Go Nowhere and Are For Diagnostic use Only,

All Triumph alarms are equipped with an alarm connector block in the wiring loom. This allows the Triump alarm system to be installed without modification of the wiring loom.

    The wires are split from the main loom so there is no need for termination.
    It seems there would be a cover to prevent shorts, does it look like it was used in the past, rub marks or scars from being plugged in or covered?

    You have received the answer to your question, right?


    The plug you are referring to is called a dugegher pin #4.


    It is usually plugged into the Flux Capacitor which hasn't been available since 1955. Triumph will continue to equip all vehicles with this adapter until Mike Fox stops shaking.


    Manufacturers Advisory :::::::: Never attempt to plug this connector into any device not authorized by Triumph, This action could cause an interruption in the rotation of the Earth and end in the Apocalypse


    Seriously Dude, put the bike back together and you will know what is not working and figure out where the plug goes.

That sounds like an accessory electrical clip. I BELIEVE that is is an electrical add on that one could hook up running lights etc. I had a similiar hook up on my Kawasaki and the mechanic finally told me that if there was no male/female connector right by it that this was an accessory hookup only. I think that is what you have there, thanks!

From what I can gather is that they attach to wires coming down from the gauges, it is some type of sensor wire there should be a second wire that will fit into that one or onto that one up near the seat

Hi, This sounds like the connector on my bike that is strapped under the fuel tank for the odometer, easy to miss when you put the tank back on. What if anything is not working? Also easy to not notice the odometer till you are moving. Good Luck!

There is a temperature sensor on the side of the engine which may be faulty. Before replacing it, try cleaning the electrical contacts as these can get dirty and cause erratic readings.

I would start with new plugs and cleaning the air filter. Also, if the bike has carburetors, I would drain the carbs. Condensation from the gas tank may have gotten into the carb float bowls.

This is difficult. I'm sure that somehow you have lost the ignition timing. What I'm not sure of is how this might have happened.

Tt600 performance parts?


There are no mass-produced engine parts for the 600/650cc, so you'd be looking at custom built parts. There are ecm programs (e.g. power commander and tuneboy) that will help with power as will aftermarket mufflers.
