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.

AHHHHH! yes! Now i can put it back on. went out to look and must have bumped it off when i was working. Cause it wasnt laying on floor of the ski! Thanks a lot! Oh didnt forget about the seat. I still want it but just had to spend 150 bucks for some new o rings and stuff. And the bill came earlier for the blasting and powder coating the pipes. But i wil pm you!

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

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.
