I removed the cover on the opposite side to the spark plug side and sent the camera probe in all i can say is that it's going towards the fuel cap. I even put my hand in to feel where it was going and nearly got my hand stuck in. All i can say is if everything is working as it should then leave it but if your realy concerned then your going to have to remove a lot of the tupperware and thats not a quick job .I've had mine off 3 times and even if i did it again tomorrow i'd still be scratching my head wondering which screws to remove and trying to find the hidden screws.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Let sleeping dogs lie. No need to stir up electrical gremlins. It is a Italian vehicle after all.

yeh, done that, well most of the plastic seat tub etc,,, still cannot see the other end of the broken wire,,, well miffed with it so I am. Recently bought the Fuoco and found that mice had made a home under the plastic at some stage in its life,,, chewed the wires behind the clocks,, on top of the fuel tank and had a go at the wiring harness on the frame just above the spark plugs,,, maybe they eat the other end of the broken wire Ha Ha that's why I Carnot find it.

May be it's a single wire that is spur coming out of a wrapped part of the wiring,look for the mice nibbled loom and unwrap the tape.

My last post was a little light hearted,,, the loose wire does not reach the area that the mice have been too. Eventually took you advise and left it as all appears to be working,,, all back together now.
