Part ID

So... I work at a fire department and there are about four of us who ride various GS/GSAs. Anywho, one of my co-workers found this in our parking area.



I know it is a BMW part because of the imprint on the collar. I have done a number of parts# searches using the numbers in the pic for the various bikes in question with no results. Anyone have an idea? Any help is greatly appreciated.

The bikes it may have come off include either a 07, 08 or 10 GSA.. or an 05 GS.

What size is it?
It looks like it could go around a lock cylinder or 12v socket depending in its size.
I would think that if that part is off a BMW GS the part number would Google up a hundred thousand results.

Here is a pic of the other side with a tape measure for sizing.


Not real sure its even off one of our bikes. For all I know it could have come off of a car involved in an accident and found it's way back to the station.



Before I started this thread I googled part numbers, used maxbmw's parts# search and still nothing. That is why I am reaching out to you all. I figure someone may have come across this part at some time if it is indeed off of a GS/GSA. I have tore into my bike pretty deep in the past and do not think I have seen anything resembling this part. Mine is the 08 GSA and was the last bike in the area the part was found. I did add some fuel line protectors yesterday but that didn't involve much that I could see this thing falling off.

Again, thanks for any info!!
Josh

This is the rubber piece in the gas tank opening that some owners would remove to get an extra few ounces of fuel in the tank. My 07 had it.

BMW calls it a "spacer". It was used through 2007.

Yup, that's what it is.

I was thinking that may be it.. Thanks!!

It looks like anything after 2007 doesn't have that part so that at least narrows it down to two bikes. (weird that the part number didn't "pop" when I searched max) I'm guessing whoever it belongs to took it off and doesn't need it but I will ask em to make sure. If they don't want it I wonder if I could throw it on the FM. Max is getting $3.36!
