What is this thing

I am wondering what this thing is? Somehow I found it mixed in with all gl1000 parts when I teared it down. Everything is back on except this thing.
Thank you

Put it out in the sun and shoot some different angles.

What's it made out of? Is it hollow? What are the dimensions?

Why ain't we ridin'?

Looks like a spark plug or distributor cap with it's wire clipped off. You don't recall pulling it off the bike? When you boxed up parts during your tear down, could it have been already hiding in a the box you loaded your parts into?

Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

It might have came off your bike but it doesn't belong on it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

*nods* that's a left handed samoflange... which is reverse threaded from a right handed samoflange.

A wing isn't an old mans bike, it's a wise mans bike. Often that wisdom comes with age. Sometimes not at all.

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul

If it is rubber and has 2 nipples it could be some kind of vacuum fitting. Better pics would help a lot.
