    What is this bracket? TW200

    Hi from Australia.
    Can anyone tell me what the small silver/gold bracket is on the back side of the engine (near the swingarm pivot). See photo:

    They don't come like that from the factory. Has the swingarm been changed? Maybe it was used somehow in the process of putting a new swingarm on???

    I believe it's for battery drain and/or carb overflow hose

    Good guess, that's probably it. My 87 didn't have that or at least I never noticed... Haha

    Carb drain and breather hose. I think the battery drain is routed down the right side. I’m also curious about that swing arm. If it’s paint over stock or other?

    Very interested in the EFI. Would also like to hear more about it. And perhaps some pictures of the install?
