Thank you Jettawreck for the info

"Here's a link to a list of the color schemes through the model years. Sometimes they were repeats.
http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php?topic=38002.0"

looks like I have a "Franken-bike"

the title says 2004 (and so does the hardware under the plastics) but the paint says 92/93?

I bought her a few years ago at a "salvage" bike dealer in Southern Maryland  (the front fender is not black like the rest but a VERY dark metalic blue... which can only be seen in bright sun)
I'm just doing the best I can, with the little bit I got!

The naked GTR looks absolutely awesome!

Wow!  Very nice!

The 2002 (sold) and the 2005 (sale pending). Sort of like twins...
This street bike thing is all new to me.
Snowmobiles-I have a bunch of those.

Hi guys,
Fantastic forum; I can feel all the love for these great machines.
Just purchased a new-to-me 2004 Connie ($1500!!!!!!!!!!! Just dropped cpl times and needed new brakes all around is all) and have yet to find an owner's manual. I love the beast and named her Fenrir (after the Norse Wolf :D). I plan on doing most all my own work. Anyone know where to find a PDF(etc.) file of the manual? I'm a new rider (took the basic ridercourse). Also, if anyone can tell me what this rocker control (with grip bumps on top and bottom button face) on the left dash does, I'd appreciate it a lot!!

Someone has added that switch on. Not original. You will have to trace the wires to find were they go

Dricardo1...

So what happens when you push the mystery button?

Nothing I can tell so far, while in neutral or otherwise, bike on or off. Was kinda scared to push it either way, at first. Thought it was stock...maybe a hazard.   Don't wanna mess with the fairings as of yet...Former owner (who modded it) Daniel Clark of Centennial, Colorado, are you out there? D:

Having just figured out a long-standing issue with my 2001 C10, I am recently overcome with renewed joy for my Connie.  This is mine, recently refreshed with brand new tires, straight-rate front springs, and a Progressive rear shock.
