Thread: What is this??

    What is this??

    My bike is a 2012 K1300S and I was curious as to what this part is. It looks like an antennae, of some sort. It's located on the left/front side of the bike, between the fairing, about fender height.

    Does anyone know what this is and what it is for??

    Edit: For some reason the pic rotates but on the bike, it is actually pointing forward.

    Thanks! Part ID.jpg

    Antenna?

    Sure as hell isn't a radar jammer. I know that for a fact!

    No, it's not a sensor. It's a henweigh.

    It's the antennae that sends your speed data from the ECU directly to the police radar. Wrap it with tinfoil.
