Mystery Part - Please Identify
« on: February 09, 2018, 11:56:33 pm »
Wiring in some grip heater and I found this kinda loose stuck in the wire bundle by the rad neck. Anybody know what it is? It has a cut in it. isn't straight so maybe it didn't come that way. Also has a groove on the inside around the diameter as if it would fit on something to keep it from sliding. Different diameter holes on each end. Stands about 1 3/16" high(long).
Thanks for the assistance.

If it's hard rubber, it may be one of the dampers the tank sits on. 
There's one on each side of the tank in the front on the bottom.

They have a habit of popping off, then dematerializing and going
to the 5th dimension...  with lighters and socks.

You the man. Makes sense finding it tucked in the wire bundle. Thanks for solving that. I owe you a cool one.  :beerchug:

I wrap electrical tape around the steel stub these things go on to make them stay put.

You say "these things" - is there more than one??

There is only one of the actual part in question - which goes on the clutch hydraulic line up by the steering head.

Others are referring to the fuel tank bumpers of which there are 2.

It looked like a tank damper from the picture....  I was wrong  :(

Mnbikeguy got it right...  I need glasses for my glasses I guess.  :o
