Does anyone know what this wire/relay by my battery is for?

I just bought my second bike today, its an 01 gsxr 600...I rode it home and as soon as I got home I shut the bike off. About fifteen minutes later I couldn't resist and hopped back on to go for another ride. I turned the key and the battery was almost completely dead. Now i'm trying to figure out what could be causing the problem...I took my battery in and had it tested and it came out good, so now I'm looking for other causes. I have charged the battery 4 times already today with no luck of retaining the charge... What is this wire/relay for? It obviously isn't doing its job.

As you can see it is right by the battery tray, that red wire coming off doesn't go to anything either, its just laying at the bottom of the tray with a taped end....

1.) the circuit is open due to the wires, so it is not the cause of your drain.

2.) judging by the wiring, that is not factory

3.) it isn't a relay. A circuit breaker/fuse maybe, or a switch, but not a relay.
