under the seat. Anybody know what it is for?

Dealer didn't know, thought maybe for some OE accessory? I don't have a book on the ST10 yet so can't look it up.

Re: Extra Plug . . .

Four pin? That's the diagnostic connector.

Re: Extra Plug . . .

According the set up instructions it is anABS test plug and the setup person is supposed to use the zip tie in the parts kit to fold it back and zip tie it to the other wires under the seat.

2 connectors under the seat

Ok, since I don't have service manual yet, what are the two connectors under the seat for? One looks to be at least 6 pins with yellow wires coming from it and the other has four pins that are capped-off...neither are connected to anything. Are both of these for diagnostics? The bigger one is kinda tucked away and appears to have contacts exposed.

Looking in the service manual it does look to be the ABS test connector.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure the one sitting in plain sight once you lift the seat is for ABS diag. The one I'm wondering about is kind tucked behind a platic flap on the RH, FWD side of the same under-seat area and it's halfway hidden by a plastic boot. The connector is white and rectangular-shaped (not a perfect square). It looks to have room for six pins, but only 4 positions have terminals. The ABS test connector at least has protective plugs in the terminal holes. This one doesn't.

Oh well. I'll bug the dealer about it next time I swing by.

Electrical idiot needs help! Searched the forum, already.
What is the empty plug under the seat for? Heated grips?
Im hooking up a FuzeBox under the seat. Im looking for switched power for the FuzeBox.
Where can you order a plug for it?
Can anyone put a function to the color for me?
Don't mess with ABS connector. Check out easternbeaver's Tenere section

They have a plug and play adapter that pulls the switched power signal from the break light connector under the seat... The connector you need to plug in into is in a recessed area under the plastic on the RH side beneath the seat..in a boot along with several other connectors. :) You might do best by unbolting the rear fuel tank mount to pull that plasitic cover out of the way.

If the colors here match the similar Eastern Beaver connector I got that plugs into the driving light aux plug, the black wire is 12v switched to the ignition and the blue is a ground. But it's easy to test to be sure. Just use your multimeter to measure between each of the wires and the negative terminal of the battery, with the ignition on or off.

I just received this handy dandy pig tail from EB and went back to the web site to review his pics on placement of the PC-8 and noticed that EB has a recall and instructions on the early plug and play connectors. His web site says the yellow and blue wires are reversed http://easternbeaver.com/Main/Bike_Specific/Super_Tenere/super_tenere.html

Re: PLUG UNDER SEAT

NOTE: Some early models of this adapter were sent out with wires switched. Please accept my apologies and see this page for how to swap your wires.

Swap the yellow and blue wires on both connector halves.
The above Msg. from EB web site.
I just tested it out and sure enough it is backwords. I would of thought EB would of sent the corrected pig tail since it was posted on his website prior to me ordering the pig tail. The hardest part of the install (PC-8 and wiring)was releasing the little pins in the plug! :mad:

Re: 4 pin plug under the seat

It is a very easy procedure. Takes less than 5 mins. Your dealer will do it for you. The "tool" required is no more than a means of shorting out 2 of the wires contained in the plug, I have not a link available to purchase one in The U.S. I am sure someone will be along to help. Apparently exercizing the A B S at least once a year is advised so that pump and valves do not seize up.

Brilliant if everything (ABS) is working as it should. But in this life, experience has thought me that $h!t happens. Might be much safer and more cost effective to have the tool.
Fair enough, but you won't know for sure that it will work in real life, not in simulation, until you actually engage ABS. It can be done safely at a few mph on gravel or grass. I do it all the time.

Re: 4 pin plug under the seat

Or on a rainy day when the car in front of you looks up from texting and realizes they are about to hit the car in front of them. They get to test their ABS system just a second before you test yours. I can tell you the system works very well on my bike.

Re: 4 pin plug under the seat

+1 on what Fred said...
Try braking on dirt or gravel at moderate speeds and you'll be amazed at the capability of the ABS brakes...
Also try front only, rear only and both to see the differences...you will be impressed on how much control you have.

Re: Wire Harness under the seat?

You are correct, it is for diagnostic related services from the dealer. Don't cut into it!!!

It is also where you can jump a wire to ground to enable the European spec CO adjust mode.

I don't think that is the connector that he is talking about. The one in that thread is to the tip over sensor under the passenger seat. I believe that he was referring to the empty plug under the rider seat that is the ABS test connector.

Reading info from Diagnostics plug under seat ?

Does anyone know how to do this ?

I am assuming that he STen does not have a full on Canbus system like the BMW's but can one read info from the Diag plug ? And maybe send info back down again.

For example - Can one read speed from the diag plug - and trigger the hazard light to flash via diag plug ?

Re: din/pin

Jumper the black and blue wired pins with a wire. Stripped both ends of a awg 16 wire will snugly fit into the connector. The service manual calls for a specific Yamaha connector but the jumper wire trick works the same.

You can confirm if the jumper is connected by turning on the key and observe that the ABS lamp will flash.

To cycle the ABS, after doing the above, kill switch set to OFF, press n hold the start button for 4 secs, then simultaneously hold down both lever n pedal of the brakes. Continue holding until the ABS pump finishes its sequence which takes about 15 secs.

To remove the rubber waterproof plugs on the connector, I find that a micro screwdriver meant for spectacles, flat blade type, and of the smallest one, can do the job.

Cycle the pump once a while to move out any build up crude within the valves. Do this after bleeding the brakes. It is required per brake bleeding procedure.

Re: What's the extra connector under seat?

Merged a half dozen of the nearly identical threads on this question.


No harm or foul in asking, but SEARCH first is your friend.
