Love the bike!!!!! Tell me what the black piece is on the valve cover? Does it keep that nut from vibrating off?

Will be a while until this one is done and ready to be given to my buddy - Leo Goff will be rebuilding the top end and ensuring it's otherwise mechanically perfect (but can't get to it until at least December) and quite a bit of aesthetic stuff needs to happen, but today I nuked the ugly / loud bugle pipes that came on it:
and put some factory pipes back on it (well, Emgos) - these will be JetHot coated in black while Leo has the bike in December:
Sounds so much better, and runs better. I'm betting whoever put the bugles on didn't rejet the carbs. Sounds like a nice sewing machine now.
Still trying to figure out what to do about the seat - considering a solo, but also considering a factory seat as well as a corbin. Def going to go mildly 'cafe racer' with it, lots of matte black.
Bike is beautiful.What did you use to convert the front forks to dual disc?
