Don´t listen to them - they´re all wrong!

It´s the final drive lash adjuster bolt. Essential to have final drive lash properly adjusted,especially if you´re doing wheelies on a daily basis.

On a serious note - you can cut that projecting part off, to allow for hitch members to run clear off the rear swing.

A fellow Swedish GL-owner fitted a CX 500 final drive many years ago and cut this part off. Never had a problem with it.
