Broken tab on speed sensor bracket
This is driving me crazy. On pg 38 of the user manual, I see a picture of this thing and it's being called the speed sensor bracket (aluminum, just behind the hex-head bolt on the right front fork), HOWEVER, if I look for the part online, I can see it being described as part # 55720-27G00, on Partzilla, as a Front ABS Sensor Bracket. So I don't know WHAT it is! This is my first attempt at changing tires on my bike. In removing the front wheel on my 2008 DL650A, I removed calipers from both sides, loosened pinch bolt on the right, then used the 12mm hex-head ratchet to slowly, carefully unscrew the hub. As the hub turned, the aluminum "speed-or-ABS" sensor bracket slowly turned with it and broke off one of the two top tabs that hold it in place on the front fork (these two tabs nestle around a bump on the inside of the right, front fork). One thing I find interesting is that there are two tabs on the bottom of this bracket as well, but there is no corresponding bump on the inside of the front fork for these bottom tabs, so it seems like Suzuki could have doubled the security of the fitment but did not. Does anybody else have a second bump for the lower tabs?
Do you know what this is? (I'm attaching a photo.) Never mind. "I may not post attachments. I may not edit my posts."
1. What did I do wrong? Is it common practice to, for example, wedge in a big screwdriver somewhere and hold that while turning the hex head bolt?
2. Is it possible that I can bolt it back up because the tabs are not all that necessary? Or was that a $100 flushing sound that I heard when I turned that hex-head and watched that little tab drop to the floor?
Thank you so much for your experience and advice!
