Default Leftover part! please help me identify this :)

So I've changed out the starter on my 06.. everything went smoothly enough but as I was putting my primary cover back into place I noticed this piece sitting under the bike. I couldn't see anywhere that it looked like it belonged so I figured I'd ask the experts

Thanks!

Is that one of the locator dowel pins used to align the primary case as it's being installed? There should be one in the front and one at the rear, my guess is it's the one from the rear?

I have a whole bucket of left over parts. Why the hell does HD use so many extra parts? So far my bike has lost about 15 pounds.
Nice bike Johnny. I love the look.

Yup that's what it was... I didn't even notice them when I first pulled it off.
Thanks Guys!

Now hopefully I can figure out primary chain tensioning and fluid capacity..
Found plenty of good info on here, but this is my first venture into the primary on this bike.

Fluud capacity is 28 oz or until it just covers the bottom of the clutch hub..

Tension is important to get the tightest part of the chain... I typically hold it (chain) up with my finger while turning the rear wheel.. transmission in 5th gear. Plugs out of bike..once I feel the chain push my finger down. I go forward and reverse to check it. Once im sure thats the tightest. I make my adjustments.

Thanks Tigger
I filled it to the bottom of the clutch hub.. took right around 28 oz. I also filled a container with the original fluid I drained out, since it seemed like a lot, and checked it, about 38 - 40 oz had been in there originally.
Haven't adjusted the chain tension yet.. when putting it back together I just turned the adjuster to roughly what it had been set at before. I fired it up to see how the starter worked and I do notice a new noise while it's just idling in neutral. I'll get the chain adjusted properly tonight and see what happens.

Thanks for the help!
