Doesn't look like a carb part to me. Doesn't look like any part I've seen on my bikes. But, it does look like if it went to the bike it would go to something plastic....

Check your false tank and air cleaner and lower fairings and such and see if you can find another part that looks like that.......

Not having TOO much experience with the 1200s, it looks like it MIGHT be an isolator for the air tubes that run under the carb.s; maybe....

Its not from inside the carb.s thats for sure.

Not to sound like a smart butt, but, if the bike runs fine without it.....

It looks like one of the dampers on the metal plate behind the radiator. It helps support the top part of the plate to the removable front motor mount cross brace. One on each side at the top if I remember correctly. The plate is fastened securely on the bottem through the front motor mount bolts so it's not going anywhere.

If it's not of the radiator, it's a rubber mount for a relay under the shelter, this is where I'd look first since you were just in there.

Yes...all I did was remove the lower part of the fairings on both sides. So it had to come off somewhere? Thanks for all the input.

Dizzy is absolutely right...
If you don't want to bother putting it back on, I'll give you 5 bucks for it. Plus shipping.

Who can identify this part and where it goes??

I recently pulled my carbs off my GL 1200 1986 Aspencade and found this on top of motor before they came out? Can anyone positively identify and where it goes? And is it needed?


Thanks

Why did you start a second thread on this ryster?? The one you started yesterday already has a lot of replies, you don't need to ask the same question in a new thread.

If you can't find your old threads or posts, just click the Search at the top of the forum, then in the drop-down box click "find my threads" or "find my posts".

To make it more of a general post instead of just a carb post. Thought it might generate more interest this way...

No point in making an identical thread a day after the first one when plenty of members already responded. That just annoys people who took the time to chime in and help already. Keep it in the same thread so we don't have duplicates all over the forum.
