    What is this "clip" for? 98 GP1200

    There is a clip that is located on the intake of my motor. The intake is a riva intake. I do not know what it is for. I noticed it when i was taking off the pipes. Nothing was hooked in it. Please help thanks!

    Holds the grease nipple that is on the hose for your intermediate shaft lubrication.

    I would say it's probably for a throttle or choke cable. The grease fitting gets bolted down under the head screws. And there is a slot for a cable in that pic

    I thought that at first, but it was on the wrong side. I had a plate on mine that bolts between the F/A and carbs that accepted the grease nipples in the front and rear. it was slotted also only a lttle bigger.

    Addicted is right its for a cable.
    When you run aftermarket carbs shaft to shaft you need that slot.
    Grease fitting would go to the plate Bill is talking about between the carbs and air box.
    Some eliminate the plate with an aftermarket head because theres no way to mount the plate to the head.
    I zip tied my grease fitting to something,forget what.

    Mine was on the other end that looks like a Riva manifold I used a R&D manifold.
    There was a slot in either end just depends how you set it up or what carbs you run.

    These are Marks carbs now.
