I just noticed that there's a plastic see through wrap on the steering wheel rod, not sure on proper name :)
Did my dealer forgot to take it off, or is it there for a reason ?
It's only on the left side, nothing on the right side.

Not on mine, and I've only had it 8 days, today. I assume dealer left it on.

It will guard the wires from rubbing on the steel fork tube. Eventually they could wear thru the insulation. Is it necessary, probably not but why not see if it rubs thru the protector first?

I agree with Navin. Prolly there to prevent wear on the wire insulation. My bike doesn't have it.

I did notice one more "guard" that I decided not to remove because there are wires right next to it and it could help them from getting damaged.

Your bike has a steering wheel?
Lol, nice catch
Yeah I decided to leave that one alone.

I also noticed that black piece of door edge guard only on one side the 2nd day I had my bike. I thought maybe it was missing the one on the left side, so I went back to the dealership to look at the floor models and they were the same.
