Anyone know what this is?

I was working on my bike relocating the rectifier and the relays and I hear a metallic sound pinball sound  effect until it hit the floor. I didn't see anything that I had touched or moved around that resembles this but here it is:

Here’s one more picture:

I forgot to mention I put the tank back on the bike hooked everything up and and there were no codes or any notification that something was wrong via the dash. It started fine, I'm just dumbfounded as to what it is and where it came from.

I am no help at all but my first step would be to check the parts diagram from Partzilla or Revzilla just to confirm.

It doesn't look like any part of the motorcycle to me.

It might have been something involved in how the bike was packed for pre-delivery, or something that came from the dealer when they unpacked the new bike.

It's the dinkerator arm. It holds the floogie-gasket in place

Unfortunately I don't think it's a part, more like a peice of a part if anything.

I recall having seen something very similar before but no where on my 07. Good luck!

Did you buy your bike used or remove any accessories like a windscreen or phone mount? Could be something that was dropped and lost?

It does not look like an FZ part to me.

That's an interesting pokey bit on the end. Nice, smooth rounded nub. I'd hang on to it. Looks like a good tool for popping the body pins with. 

 

At first I was gonna say feeler gauge fell out of the toolkit, but there's no size markings and it looks a bit thick for that anyway.

 

I found a wrench in the engine bay of a car once. A car I'd completely restored and the wrench had someone's initials engraved in it that I didn't recognize. I swear it must've been the luckiest piece of road debris catching that ever happened, because I have no idea otherwise. 

 

p.s.- it was aliens 👽

It almost looks like some sort of bracket that folds into itself, but I don’t see that nub being particularly strong….

it looks a bit like a bent part of a retail merchandise display, like it fits into another piece just like it in one of the shelves at the end of the aisle or something.

So based on all of the responses it's pretty clear... no one knows what it is

Looks familiar.

 

Looks almost like a battery tray holder

I find it very familiar also I just can't pin it down what it is. I 'll probably figure it out after I throw it away. FFS!

That's the clip that holds the crumb tray under your toaster, throw it away and move on!

Question is: what was the mechanic doing to your bike with those nasty snippers?


Just do it!
