Electrical question

So while I wait for my new axle to show up, I've been trying to clean up the hodgepodge mess of wiring that's been added to my '91gl1500a trike. I'm trying to figure out (1) what the vacuum solenoid labeled "20 AJ3 18" is for, and (2) why there is a fused line added to it and what it could be useful for. I don't like the twist on electrical connections they used, but at least it's soldered underneath. For reference, this is all located near the right side fairing pocket.

The in-line fuse smacks of an "aftermarket add-on" of some sort. Could you have a cigarette lighter plug, or voltmeter, or USB port added on the the original dash. How about additional lights up front? How many Amps is the fuse?

That's a nice 'Professional' wiring job (NOT!). Looks like the same person that did the wiring on mine for a CB radio and then I pulled out about 10' of wire with 3 in line glass fuses.
The first pic is stuff that belongs on the trike. The last pic someone cut into the OEM harness and added something. Possibly the ring of fire and fender ornament.

Yeah it's definitely an ugly home hack job bit of add-on wiring. It currently just deadends where the wire was cut, not covered in electrical tape or anything!
I'll probably salvage the inline fuse for later use and do something to rectify that hack job back to an approximation of stock.

Those are the carb air jet control solenoids. Some moron picked up power for something from there, not a smart move.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Ok, that's what I was trying to figure out, what their purpose was. Thanks!
