The plug blocks off the bore where the manual decompression lever went on the earlier models. It's item 15 in the illustration here:

The hex bolt does not hold it in, but it did hold the decomp shaft in place when the bike had one. You can replace the whole thing with one of these:

Or an 18mm frost plug works great too

No problem. Use a deep 10 mm socket to drive it in. Fits perfectly. :cheers:
