This little black box (2"X3") came out from under the seat of an '02 1800 C. It has two green wires at one end and a black wire at the other end. One of the green wires was spliced into a wire on the bike, that's all. The black wire and second green wire were not hooked to anything. I am not the one that removed it so at this time I do not know what wire on the bike it was tapped into. There is no label or markings of any kind. It was not mounted or tied down, just sitting on the battery cover.

So, can somebody tell me, is it a genuine thing-a-ma-bob or just a do-hicky? Who made it and what was it supposed to be doing under there? :yikes:

it could be a government tracking device.......have you noticed any black helicopters flying around?

if you have it inside your house they could be listening to everything say, write, and think:yikes:

if I were you, I'd wrap some aluminum foil around your head immediately to block out the rays

Does the black cover come off? I would start picking at it until it is totally destroyed and then keep it just in case I needed it for something some other time.

Kind of looks like a light modulator to make the brake light flash when the brakes are applied. I think you might find a picture of one on the HDL website , I think it's a "Back Off" rear brake modulator. It's too small to be a Power Commander besides it doesn't have enough wires coming from it for that.

Im thinking that it could be a headlight modulator, with the heavy wires for a heavier load and the headlight would be about the heaviest load for current as there is on a bike.:popcorn:

I'd put it in a vice and squish it a little untill it cracks. Then pry it open with a screwdriver. I bet that is has a printed ciruit board in there. If it does, then there you go.:mrgreen:

It is an alarm that goes off if you try and put tank trim on your bike. In some states, tank trim is a felony. Punishable for up to 10 years.
