    Spare bit after cleaning

    Hi guys, I washed my bike the other day with a little more vigour than usual as it was particularly dirty. Anyway after cleaning drying polishing etc etc and putting the bike away I found a bit of rubber plug thing on the patio where the bike had been. I've had a quick look to see where it came from and even looked at the spare parts pictures to see if I can identify it but with no luck.
    So before I get my reading glasses on, knee pads and a torch do any of you recognise this elusive bit? Photos attached hopefully.
    Thanks in anticipation.

    Just a guess, but look where extra wing mirrors could be screwed in, by the reservoirs on the handle bars, it looks like a blanking plug.

    Mirror Blanking plug is a good call  :169:

    For information there is another rubber part on the Side Stand, and also on the Centre Stand
    ( to cushion and deaden the metal on metal noise when the stand is raised ),
    which are easily dislodged when cleaning !

    I agree with the blanking plug theory guys. I have a look as you both suggest tomorrow.

    That's my best guess.

    Wilko got it. After spending about 30 minutes scrabbling around on the floor looking up through my varifocals for a missing plug around the stands I thought I'd check the mirror theory. You know what, I didn't even know they were there. Thank you.  :047:
