Default Mystery find in pointy tail wiring

Does anyone have any idea what this could be? And why its wired like that? Found it while trying to fix an immobiliser problem

Bike: SV650 2005

Does your bike have aftermarket, LED indicators?

Looks like a reed switch for an aftermarket alarm. Probably to trigger when the pillion seat is lifted.
Any sign there was the other half on the underside of the seat?

Hi, I believe its a reed switch that is normally screwed down and then opened and closed by a magnet attached to something movable. Could it be from an alarm system to detect seat removal?

A google search of the part number confirms it as a reed switch
