That is the piece of bar between the rear brake caliper and the swing arm.

Usually it is black.


What is this?

That's one of the brake disc/rotor mounting bolts :)

This might be a bit harder ( especially for the guys in the States ) because this part was only fitted to late model Euro spec bikes :ponder: ( that's a clue )

That, Mikee, is a throttle position sensor. It mounts to the throttle shaft on the carburetors and sends a signal to the CDI box telling what the position of the throttle is. The CDI uses that information to calculate the timing for the ignition system allowing for variable timing maps.

Here's the next one. What is it, where does it go and what does it do?

That is the starter enrichment plunger; commonly (but incorrectly) referred to as a "choke". When you pull the knob on the left side of the carb bank, it pulls a rod that in turn pulls this plunger on all four carbs simultaneously. The plunger allows extra fuel to enter the carb venturi to help the engine warm up until it can more efficiently atomize fuel on its own. It "enriches" the air/fuel mixture.

Try this one:

Intake Manifold Boots. Rubber boots where the Carbs mount to the intakes creating an airtight seal, the source of many a lean issue headache due to being old, cracked and leaky.

Is that the connector for the airbox where the oil breather tube plugs into.

Are those bar ends?

OK WHAT IS IT?

And why has it been off my bike for ~4 months?

Should it go back?

Why does the bike run fine?
