06 misc wires

Ok, so a good buddy of mine, actually the guy that got me into riding as a kid just picked a nice 06 FJR. Second or third ride out it started showing 9 bars on the temp gauge. He then proceeds to take off the fairing to see what’s going on and discovers a few miscellaneous wires a previous owner had added. He’s curious what the wires might have been used for. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I sent him a few different links covering overnight heating from this site so he can sort out his cooling issue. Hopefully it’s not a huge deal. He was close to buying a Connie but went with the FJR instead. More than likely becaus I’ve had my GEN 1 for 4/5 years and haven’t had any major problems.

In the first picture, the black lump with the ring terminal is the ambient air temperature sensor for the air temp readout in the instrument panel. The ring terminal is not an electrical connector, it is to secure the sensor to any fairing part where it will not be influenced by engine or radiator heat. I don't know about the other wires.

Are his radiator fans coming on at 7 bars like they are supposed to?

I was in there today and snapped a pic for more detail for the OP. The white thing is the attachment, there's a hole in the frame to stick it in. Just raise the ring straight up and you'll see it.
