I take it that you found it.

The answer is "yes, it's still there on the '05", and "yes, it's still a piece of *".

Get the TT replacement for it and end your worries. :applause:

I just put a TT decompression plug up for sale in the classifieds...

I bought it to use with my old 426 but sold the bike. Send me a PM if interested.
