what do i do with the wires?

I'm a noob when it comes to bikes even though I've had 3 Never done any type of work on them myself, and now that I have been I have some questions.

I took off all my plastics, lights,and everything pretty much, headlight assembly.

And now I have huge wires and plugs sticking out, mainly in front where the headlight assembly used to be...and I dont know what to do about them. I have a track body coming in and I'm going to put that on soon, but I don't imagine I just leave all that junk dangling, do I?

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

Also, when I turn the bike on ('07 R6) it throws a code 22, but when I put the bike in gear and stroll around it goes away

Thanks for any help guys

is that what you mofos do that have track bodywork on??

Also, think that code will be a problem?

A code 22 is

Air temperature sensor(ATS): open or short circuit detected.


So..is it because I disconnected everything???

did you disconnect the air temperature sensor?

removing headlights, blinkers and tail light should not cause that.

not sure exactly where it is but I am guessing the connection is likely on or very near to the air box under the tank.

i guess it could possibly have something to do with removing the air ducts but i wouldn't think so. but i am no mechanic.

Yah, I just went out and checked. And the only open plugs are ones that would plug into the headlight assembly, so I'm kind of confused.

Maybe I'll just run it over to sunny's and have him look at it this weekend

A bunch of F2/F3s.









I put electrical tape over the connections to help prevent water from gettin in...then zip tie them up & out of the way.

Be sure once zip tied out of the way they don't bind with anything like steering and such.

the air temp sensor was likely in your arm air ducting. Pull the sensor out of the duct, and plug it back in.

Yeah that's where I looked. There are a couple of plugs (female) but no males to plug in to them I'll have to take a better look today, but there didn't seem to be anything to plug them with
