Strange things you find!

So stripping the bike down to get to the air filter today, I take off the air tubes and find this little thing sat in the rhs airbox intake trumpet. It's an M5 thread, so bigger than anything MV use on these bikes, and all mine are present and correct, so goodness knows where this one has come from ....

My thoughts exactly although at least it was on the outward side of the filter

Thats great that You found it but M5 well nuts are not uncommon on MV's.
They are splattered around the bikes in sizes from M4 to M6.
And this one on the photo in particular looks like it was in use for a while.
Than we don't even know even know what bike You have.
This would might enlighten some of us in the way that we could tell from where the well nut might is.

If I'm not mistaken this is for bolting small fairing parts.
The further you turn it the more the rubber will fasten....

If they are all fastened the previous owner must have dropped it without finding it back again...

Cheers,

Sorry, I saw it after my post, because I always only look at the registry.
