    Cylinder Water Diverter?

    Is this a water diverter inside the cylinder jacket? If so How important is it? Mine no longer exists. THere is only a broken screw stud left in it's place. I could try to remove or drill it out and replace if need be.

    Ah... Yeah that makes better sense. Guess I'll see if I can replace it considering where I ride.

    I wire brush any corrosion off them and let them get eaten some more. That one looks fine compared to some I see.
