Can you identify this connector?

Hey everyone!
I picked up my first “liter bike” two days ago. 2006 ZX10R and I wish I could convince myself to take a week off from work just so I could go ride it more.

I was peaking around under the fairings (without removing anything yet) and I saw a white, two wire connector that is not plugged into anything that raised a little concern.

Looking through the right side front fairing, under the tank but above the engine, there is a white connector with one solid red and one white with red stripe wire. Everything seems to be working as normal.

I looked up the wiring diagram and saw the following items that have that combination of wires.
-igniter unit
-high beam relay
-fuel pump relay
-#1 coil pack

The starts perfect and runs smooth without a noticeable misfire, so I could eliminate the igniter unit, fuel pump relay, and coil pack I would think.

The high beam works as normal so I could eliminate that.

I’m sure I’m missing something here. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

See my attached picture, I don’t know why it rotated the picture.
I think that’s the “pair valve” right on top of the valve cover. Very easy to get to and plug back in.

First things first. I've attached and corrected NinjaLife's picture here for reference below.

He's right in the fact that it's the connector for the air valve. He's wrong in using the PAIR terminology though. That's a Suzuki term. On the Kawasaki's, it's refereed to as the KLEEN valve - Kawasaki Low-Emission ENvironmental control. It's essentially the same thing and just named differently between manufacturers. The more general acronym is AIS - Air Injection System.

The valve itself sits on top of the valve cover. A lot of people disconnect it and use block-off plates on the valve cover to seal the system. Having the connector loose may be correct if that's been done already. That typically throws an FI warning though. Not on the Gen 2 however as there is no feedback for it. Having it dangle around is not a good idea. You'll need to pull the tank and inspect what mods have been done to that system. If the valve is still there, plug the connector back in. If it's been removed, tie the connector back up and out of the way to keep it from dangling and damaging other parts.

NinjaLife has it correct though and you should use his pic as a reference on it!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Thanks for the quick responses! Now that the weekend is finally here, I’ll be pulling the tank to confirm if it’s been blocked off or not.

Man, now im gonna have to go home and look at mine tonight because i could swear i jumper'ed that plug with something like a paperclip and electric taped it all up, probly zip tied to something. Pretty sure thats what i did after disabling the KLEEN system (no block offs - re-route to reed valves). Been a while since i did that mod. Best color for a Kawi, looks like mine.

It's been awhile since I've had my Gen 2. From what I remember, the plug was jumpered back then by a lot of people. I don't see any service codes tied to that in the manual however, which would imply that it can just be disconnected. Won't hurt it to jumper the plug though.

Block-off plates are a clean way of removing the system, but connecting the ports together is the same thing functionally.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Pull some plastics this weekend and confirmed that is meant to be unplugged since it has the block off. Zip tied out of the way. Thanks again everyone for the knowledge!

Cheers!
