    Plug your VIN into the mdecoder and it should tell you what equipment your bike was equipped with - https://www.mdecoder.com/

    Mine came with the "M" battery and the VIN decoder lists that option as:  X053B   M Lightweight Battery

    Good resource... Thank you
    mine doesn't list that option.... or else dealer got some splainin to do,, so back to the mystery on why it's there...lol

    Haha, I thought that was a bag with a waterproof​ cable port... Wondered why you included that pic... I moved that alarm connector to the fuse and OBD area, removed the tab, and my tire repair kit fits nicely in that spot


    That's a bit of an understatement :008: I've replaced it with  a Stanley multi function ratchet screwdriver, most bits replaced by torx.  Sits in the same spot in the seat

    Lol... you're right it does look like a waterproof cable port..... sorry for the bad illustration

    yeah, multi tool of some sort is not a bad idea lots of good usable space under there

    Same here, some basics live under the seat, toolkit, puncture repair kit including CO2 canisters and adapter, a rag and my Motoscan scanner.

    Yup my plugs will be living there too, hell may even leave the OBD scanner in there so I stop misplacing it… also Shopping around for a mini pump, (wired) any suggestions? Love that all tire repair stuff can live together again
