Keyguard washers?

Was taking off my keyguard today to inspect my tank and one of the little bronze washers popped out of one of the holes and made it's way to the great beyond.

I don't see a part number for these in the SF parts catalogue, do they even matter?

Pic for reference. (The gold ring).

It's not a washer but a brass insert thats quite commonly used in plastic and carbon mouldings so as to restrict any damage when tightening the fasteners.

Ah okay, thanks. Any idea where I can find a replacement?

After losing one of mine, it became an opportunity/reason/rationalization for further supporting Shift Tech.

Can you tell me if the little botch to the left of the brass insert is normal?

I don't think so. It doesn't look like my original piece had that little botched area. Maybe take a look at a new bike at a dealer for comparison. It appears that it might be caused by the steering damper bracket rubbing on it. That bracket tends to flex a bit when in use and doesn't have a bunch of clearance to begin with. It might also be an indication that your tank is expanding. That's happened on mine. After the tank expanded, the bracket began to contact the Shift Tech guard. Previously, there had been good clearance.

Ugh, that was my thought as well, but it was smooth enough that it looked like it might have been manufactured that way. To the dealer it is.
