Went to take off the left and right lower cowl's (changing the oil), got all the screws out of the left cowl, jumped over to the right, took out the last screw on the right side, went to lower both cowls onto a blanket taking my time, making sure I knew where every screw goes, next thing ya know, on the right side, i hear a noise as if a washer was falling down from the inside. Which is when I found this little gremlin. I have NO idea where this came from. Cant seem to find any impressions as to where it once went. The only thing done to this bike is a rear eliminator turn signals and brake light kit. Think it fell down from when the previous owner did that? If not wheres it go? Driving me nuts



thanks

actually as I look at this spacer thing closer, on the back of it I can see an impression of where one of those screws that have the stop on the threads, was actually contacting this. hmmmmm, see the impression on it?

This must be related to something else as it has nothing to do with the lowers

k thank you, I can see if he was working on the eliminator kit how this would've trickled off the bottom fender into the cowl area... if there's 1 of these there has to be 2. damn.. Dont see it in the box he gave me. I'm trying to hold onto everything for this bike. I have the whole brake assembly tail section.. I'll figure it out, its just rare hardware I gotta piece together

It goes into the hole on the right side below the clutch cover, second from last. Its so we don't crush the fairing I guess. I put some glue on mine because it will pop out about the time you get all the other screws in. Goes in from the inside.

cant be dude, I see the illustration on the link you sent, so I went out there and this was never in that spot because you can see an imprint from the plastic on where the right cowl was fastened to the metal. Plus the screw in that spot wont be able to go in far enough because the thread stop will hit this insert not allowing the screw to go all the way in. It has to be something from when the previous owner did this brake/turn signal eliminator kit. Watch I'll get pics to show ya.. im getting confused here lol

if you look closely you can see the imprint of the plastic lines on the metal. No sign of a washer, and just to clarify where this is on the cowl/bike, circle in greenish

Haha you guys are funny. I've got about 5 of those things sitting in my parts drawer right now along with bolts and screws and all kinds of things that I can't for the life of me figure out where they came from. And on top of that there's places on the bike missing things that don't fit them. I'm scratching my head on that one...

Still, never had anything fall off, break, crack, scratch, or flop in the wind because of a missing washer or collar or whatever you call that.

thats used whereever there is a rubber grommet and a screw going thru it, it prevents the screw from crushing the grommet.

That's where mine went but the screw on mine didn't have a stop on it, just an all thread but thicker than the front screws. The most aft screw had a thread stop on it though.

the oil filter can be removed and replace without removing the lowers...reduces the chance of having left over stuff to...
