What year is your Bird. Don't recall those in any if the US Birds. I've been inside 98, 99, 00, 01 and 03 housings and never seen it.

It was fitted to early xx to stop the lens wobbling in the cowl in the event it was shown to be useless and was deleted

Was thinking the same guess they only did it one year and why I didn't see it in the 98.

Honda engineers introduced a deliberate mistake into the design. Purpose is to see if anyone above is paying attention. Also, when they find the mistake, they quit looking.
