    Question 2005 Sportster Supercharged disconnected wire

    Stupid question, I just bought this boat about 3 weeks ago and have been out on it may times. Last night after pulling it out I notice a wire coming off the back of the engine that is not connected to anything. It is pretty long (18 inch), but I can't seem to find where it plugs into. I think it is the last connection of the long wire harness on the engine. The end of the wire ends in a wire connection plugged into a small light blue tab or 2 inch stick, might be temp gauge for some system? The boat seems to run fine, so not sure what is going on here.

    Any advice for a newbie?

    Thanks,

    Greg

    i know its a little late.... but if it is what im thinking it is, its the temp sensor on the waterbox.

    This is the plug, I assume it is some type of temp senor.

    That is a melted temperature sensor that goes into the waterbox. You will find the other half bolted by the exhaust hose on the waterbox.

    That's part of a sensor......better order a new one and check to see why it melted.

    Thank you I have a new one on order. Not sure why this melted but I put 20 or so hours on this summer with out it plugged in. Not the best I know. My dealer said I did not need it. Won't be going there again.

    Well, got the new temp sensor and installed it, pretty easy stuff. The boar seems to be running much better, but now I have a check engine light. From what I read it just needs to have the codes cleared, but I really don't want to take it to my dealer since I had so many problems with them. The next closest one is 60 or so miles. Any advise?

    Thanks as always!
