    Unknown engine part?

    I recently stripped my 97S motor and it is now ready for reassembly, I found this part on the floor after I separated the crank case, I don't know where it came from or even if it is from the engine, I cannot find it mentioned in any manual, could anybody identify it and show where it goes (if it does). It is made of rubber and about 8mm diameter,

    Looks like the stopper for the coolant expansion tank but if its only 8mm it can't be that.

    Must be a butt plug for someone in the payroll department. Nobody else is that tight-arsed.
    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    Found this on ebay , looks similar but it might not the same item - Crankcase Plug, Suzuki Part N0. 09248-16012-000
    And looking at the crankcase drawing on Robinsons Foundry this matches up to item No 21, but I cannot find where it goes,

    Solved = it's the plug on the throttle bodies for the air screw, (rear still had it fitted, front missing) must have fallen off and rolled across the floor when I took the throttle bodies off, and found it when I stripped the engine.
