Identify a part?

Found on the garage floor in the vicinity of a Super Enduro.





Thanks for any tips!

Is your bike running or in bits?

To me it looks like a mounting spacer off a shock absorber or some other high grade part.

Thanks guys- way too small to be a wheel spacer.

Yes, there is an O-ring on it. No, the bike isn't in pieces, thank goodness!

It runs really well.

I'll try to get a better pic and post again. Appreciate the input!

Not sure where it goes, but it looks like one of those retainers for a countersunk SHCS, like the bolts that hold the rear subframe on. I don't remember seeing anything like that on my ADV, though.

Oring would indicate its designed to hold back a fluid of some sort or just stay retained in place. Hole in the center looks like a shaft or push rod might pass through it. I've never had a bike apart to see that piece yet but did you do anything with the clutch push rod from the slave cylinder through to the basket?
Pure speculation here.

The other obvious answer is its not from a bike. Just fell off your shelf and rolled over for a better look at the orange candy.
