Where does this go?

So rebuilt my CVK40 today. 2001 KLR. SHINDY products kit. Had this left over. Didn't take out a similar one so wondering what I missed. Wrench is for perspective. Thanks in advance.

That looks like one of the spacers between the upper fairing and the top rear corners of the radiator shrouds. (whoops 2001, Gen 1)

I use contact cement to 'glue' them to clip nuts on the rear corners of the radiator shrouds.

At first, I thought it might be for the CVK40 pumper. That carb has heat and there is an o-ring that goes on the carb heat fitting that looks similar. However, the pumper carb has a different bowl gasket, so this kit doesn't cover the pumper.

I believe that some ATVs use this carb and some ATVs have carb heat (I don't know shit from Shinola about ATVs), so that o-ring could still be for a carb heat fitting. I'll go look and see if I have a fitting in the drawer out in the Shop of Horrors. If I do I'll measure it. If I don't that means I'd have to climb the ladder into the attic, and that won't happen anytime soon.

Don't go into the attic on my account. I'm certain the carb is ready to go. FYI the Shindy kit doesn't have the flat sided o-ring for the coaster enrichment. Mine was in good shape so I reused it. Thanks for your response. Checked out you website too. Nice information.

The o-ring on that fitting could be an 8mm OD by 2mm thick. The one I have is stretched and hard at 9.5mm OD by 1.5mm thick.

Anyway, you’re good to go.

Was thinking of the thingys embracing the fuel screw, but . . . that O-ring looks too large for that application, to me.

So after some study of the Shop manual, it appears there is an o-ring behind the fuel drain. Gonna check that when I get home.

First of all Hello!! I'm a new user and only really been riding heavily for a couple of years but I love my gen 1 KLR.
I have become forcibly acquainted with the CVK 40 as my bike was poorly maintained when I bought it.
As someone stated before that lil squishy rubber circle seems to be the o ring for the air/fuel enrichment screw. same thing happened to me. I talked with a Harley mechanic who worked with the old carbed bikes who said you dont normaly see them come out as the small amount of fuel holds them in place while you're disassembling your carb. as they get air or sometimes even shop air. the fuel dries and they fall out oftentimes when your not looking. I hope this helps, mine looked a lil too big too I thing they stretch when they soak in carb cleaner.

good luck
