I can't positively identify it.... however, it appears to be a bracket to hold aftermarket engine guard bars.

Maybe someone removed the bars and decided not to remove the bracket due to bodywork being in the way?

The BMW GSA engine guard bars mount in a similar way.

It appears to be the bracket for the top secret anti-car missile system. I can't believe you found one of them. You can eBay it for at least $20K.

There's one on each side. It looked like a mounting for engine guards or possibly a skid plate, but I didn't see anything like it in the fiche. They are well-made parts.

Anton,
At the risk of sounding lame, did you ask the customer?
Could they have removed bars to make it easier on you?


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

These brackets look very much like the Touratech brackets shown here ...

Maybe they are the same?

Hey Anton, Yes they are part of the touratech engine guards, know as a clampplate left and right. And yes they are made well.

Bingo! Thanks.

Customer had no idea what they were. He bought the bike used; apparently the P.O. (or dealership) removed the bars and left the brackets.
