1. Idle speed adjustment screw. Found between the number 2 n 3 carbs. Used to set your idle rpm.

2. Because it looks way too clean and pristine to go back on, it would get all gunked up-n-stuff

3. Sure, why not, unless... See answer #2

4. Magic or Divine Intervention, or maybe just luck ;)

How 'bout this...

*Edited #1 because I didn't answer all the questions from the original rules.

I totally forgot about this thread!

What is it?
1994-2002 Front Stop Switch Assembly (front brake light switch)

Where does it go?
Screws into the bottom of the front brake master cylinder on the right side of the handlebars

What does it do?
When the brake lever is pulled, it moves a plunger on the front stop switch completing an internal circuit to turn on the brake light

This was a tough one to figure out! I knew I recognized it, but couldn't think of where exactly, so I went digging through the diagrams. Apparently, the design changed in 1994, but the diagrams didn't. When you look at the parts catalogs, the part number for 1992 is 3YX-83980-00-00, 1993 is 3YX-83980-01-00, and 1994-2002 is 4BH-83980-00-00. The '92 & '93 versions look quite similar; flat and boxy. The '94 and up one is this more rounded version. However, for some reason, they never updated the image in the catalog. All the way from 1992-2002, the image is the same; the flat boxy style. That's a bit misleading! Since I have a '92 and a '93, I didn't recognize it from my tear down.

Okay, here's the next one:

Looks like a cam chain tensioner

Edit - oops, didn't read the rules...

Goes in the back of the cylinder block (under the carbs) and the plunger goes through the block and pushes on the cam chain guide/runner to keep the chain tight.

This parts are used to connect the swingarm and the shock.

Forgot part two:

It is sitting deep down in the bike and you can find it between the shock and the swingarm ( before the wheel).

It Looks like this part is from any ohter bike than the Diversion.
Nothing is impossible...
