Need Help for the Installation of HP rearsets.

I've just installed the HP rearsets to my 2016 last night but I couldn't find where this black plastic piece belongs to. It's for the right (brake) side and installation seems fine and rigid without it but i'm worried to ride the bike before figuring out where does it belong to. There is no installation guide only a guide related with the adjuatments came with the rearsets.

I'll really appreciate your help. Thanks.

Hmm, I have those on mine, but I don't recall that piece.
Is it not in any diagram in the colossal install book that comes with it?

Actually, maybe I am recalling a piece like that, but I think it had to do with the shift lever mounting. I want to say it goes inside the shift lever, and the bolt passes through it and the long silver spacer, but the silver spacer doesn't sit flat without that inside. Something was in there like that though that I recall.

I checked the install book and don't see it, but I think it's the bushing for inside the shift lever itself.
Look at the shifter here in this pic on the forum, I think it's the black bushing you can see in the Shift lever

Looks like damper for the muffler mount but shouldn't need it. Use the one from original rearsets.

Found this video and don't see that part.

Thanks but I've found it in the box of brake lever. Also in the video above it seems like the piece of the brake side. Manual doesn't include any installation tips or part list unfortunately it only includes adjustment instructions

It can be seen on the video in its plastic bag laying on the floor beside carbon fiber heel plate But this guy also didn't mention it probably he couldn't find a place to install it Thanks for the video by the way. I think I need to find an installation guide

fwiw, I found my book that came with it, it seems to be all about adjustments, I don't see any installation info.
I was able to install them with out needing anything, make sure your shift lever isn't wobbly, and use loctite.
Most difficult part is getting the brake actuator connected, which is not all that bad either.
Minus all the confusing adjustment possibilities, it's only a few bolts to connect.
It might seem daunting, but it's a 20 minute job to install.

I've already installed them last day also without any instructions but that black plastic ring is still out. That is my problem

I believe this is it, and that I had initially left it off, and the shift lever was wobbly, but this seemed to fit and work as intended, no more wobbles.

You do not need that spacer UNLESS you remove the stock muffler mounting bracket. That spacer replaces the short bracket the muffler can mounts to. For example if you had a long can that had an exhaust hanger bracket off the rear foot peg you would not need the short bracket for the muffler...

Hope that makes sense, it's a spacer, it's NOT plastic its aluminum. It fills the space if you remove the short bracket for the stock muffler mounting point.

Here's a pic so you can see where it would be needed if bracket is removed.
