The real reason I asked, to be technical about it, was:

1). The markings on there have all been rubbed off, for whatever reason

2). My buddy had a Triumph Triple, and there was a similar button, and when you hit it, it would "boost" the engine. Wasn't nitrous, so I figured it had to do with timing or something. Never rode the Triumph, so he could be full of shit, too.

Please continue with the funnies, lol......

Your buddy is full of shit...Does the same as yours...Fires a multi burst laser at the women talking on the phone in front of you while putting make up on while driving. Use that button liberally.

Nothing to do with recalls; moving to the electrical section.

I found that it is very handy when wearing gloves, because you can palm it, unlike the high/low switch, but never knew about the euro connection. Makes a lot more sense now, considering their weather. Was hoping for something more exotic though. Like a phone signal interrupter? Can you make one for a bike? Sure.

I love the fact you were willing to push the button not knowing what it would do for sure.
