    Found this on the shop floor. What is it?

    It could be from one of four bikes recently in my shop.
    2001 R1150GS.
    1987 K75S
    2008 R1200RT
    R1200GS

    I know, that covers a lot of ground, but it would be nice to know where it came from and get it back on the bike.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm, that looks like it's got some rubber residue stuck to it. Could it be a spacer that kept a screw from being over tightened in a rubber bushing? Did you remove any instrument clusters lately?

    Maybe a windshield bushing?

    Mystery solved!

    AKbeemer and some others were really close.
    It's a bushing that goes in a K100 instrument mount.
