Default What is this piece?

Wondering what this part is.
It's below and to the left of the balancing screw.
It has a wire coming out and a spring inside keeping contact to
some metal piece.
Just wondering what it is and what it does.
I'm leaking a small bit of oil from somewhere.
It seemed loose so I tightened it up earlier.
Not leaking noticeably, only after driving when I park I see
a drop or two after a few minutes. Doesn't do it after
the engine is off, or being parked overnight or anything.
So what is this thing, it will start with it connected or not.

Without consulting the manual. It looks like the oil pressure sender

workshop manual available here, says to apply sealant and torque to 9ft-lbs

Also, the wire terminal should be oriented to about the 10 O'clock position

Neutral switch is on the underside of the engine (in relation to where the transmission is located)

Thanks for all the replies guys!
wooferdog is correct.
So from the time I posted this it has turned from a drip or two on that day,
to today randomly...it started gushing oil.
I mean, leaked 3.5 quarts out on a 20 minute drive.
No warning or anything, just started riding and all of a sudden...leak.
Did some reading and the only thing this part does is
send the pressure info to the oil light.
Since I don't have an oil light, I went ahead and tried to home remedy it.
First used some super glue and let it dry for a few minutes.
It stopped the leak for the most part, but still dripped some.
As of right now, I have some JB Weld drying and curing on it.
Will let you know how it holds up tomorrow.

pics, just cause I know yall like em.

OPSU leaking like a B.

see where it's coming from

clean it up for surgery.

supplies are ready

after first dose of glue

still leaked a few drops so added more glue and dried for a couple hours.

now for the real fix.

equal parts.

mix on disposable surface.

evenly coat.

let dry and cure overnight.

I'm thinkin that will do the trick.

As you can see in the first pic in the bottom right corner.
That streak of oil is from after starting, had the throttle cracked and
it spit oil out that far.
Bad leak. Smoking pretty good from oil draining onto exhaust.
Even soaked the right half of my back tire. Now scared to do right turns lol
