thanks for all your input.
Its not missing at the sidestand/switch.
The OEM partlist is not really helping me, because the parts drawn are too rough for allowing proper comparison.
All the suspension works fine, and frame connections/bolts seem to be in place. Maybe someone accidently lost it there, who knows.
Gixxer.rod, I leave the download of the repair manual to my son, and check then.
Touring Ted, our bike is a KLE, not a KLR.
All the best to you, thanks again for your input, have a great weekend and always a safe ride,
