    Loose piece under engine....need advice

    While trying to grab a dropped wrench today I noticed there is a loose box type thing under the engine on my 1997 GP1200.

    From the parts Diagram under "cylinder crankcase" I think it is the "Stopper - Upper Mount" #31.

    What is this for and does it matter if it is loose?



    Also, how do you guys get your carb mount nuts off? Thats what i was doing when i dropped my wrench.

    Service Manual calls it a "Mount Rubber" and it has two bolts.

    Just curious as to what it is intended for. If anyone knows. There is an obvious gap between the bottom of it and the hull, and it mounts to the bottom of the front engine mount.

    Hmmm, odd.

    Well, how do you remove the nuts holding on the carb plate.
