I believe it is the torx head bolt cover. There is one on the brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder that covers the bolts that clamp each to the handle bar.

Found this on the driveway, can anyone tell me where this goes? From my 2016 GL1800.
Thanks
That might be mine. I'm missing the brake side.

Unfortunately 5th gens are not perfect, and that is one of their flaws. I recommend that you order extras in, and replace them as needed, while being careful not to knock one off. They cost about $1 each. They are probably the 2nd most popular part that I sell. Part #16 in the fish below

If you want to order in the most popular part lost ... Part #1 in the fishe below. Chances are 1 or both of yours are missing too.

Something I learned from the BMW world is to lightly coat the pegs and rubbers with silicone grease. Makes the covers much easier to remove and re-install.

Some members also recommend that, however I don't. I do recommend that all grommets be inspected when a panel is removed. Any that are worn, deformed, incorrect, or missing be replaced with new OEM ones. And, for anyone having problems putting panels back on after the grommets are known to be ok, to take time out and learn how to install the panels correctly. Some will report losing panels in strong winds. My bet says that the above was not followed. If the 5th gen was a trike, that can be a totally different story.

Others will also use aftermarket grommets, but if they study the parts fishe, and what comes in the small assorted grommet kit, they will see that there is know way to know where some of the grommets go.
