Rubber strip on top of radiator???
I was checking the front tire pressure this evening on my '15 V650 & glanced up at the radiator to see if there was any damage to the cooling fins. I noticed what looked like a gasket laying on top of the radiator as wide as the radiator depth and about as long as its width. The material is similar in thickness & flexibility to an inner tube w/ cutouts for the radiator cap, fan shroud, etc. & was placed prior to the radiator installation because the top mount goes through it. It just lays on top of the radiator like it was used to protect it & doesn't actually fit other than the cap neck & shroud. Any thoughts as to what it is or its purpose???
