The Part That Shall Not Be Named

[IMG][/IMG]

Anyone seen one of these before? If not, a brake pad replacement will introduce you. I'm wondering what its technical name or part number is. I stripped the other one and need a replacement. Maybe two.

Fortunately there's a valve adjustment to do and some sprockets/chain to replace.

I am already missing riding in the damp, cold, Oregon rain.

Any thoughts, ideas, or opinions would be appreciated.

Hi Jakwriter!
IT's a "Ruler" useful for measuring the strange part to the right.
In my Clymer manual those are called "pad pins" On BikeBandit for the gen 2 they are called "pin,hunger" OE pn 92043 Hope this helps.
