Some links would be nice so people can tell what you are looking at. I saw no left side view in the few I looked at.

Not all those who wander are lost.

That would probably be the EVAP charcoal canister if I had to guess.

I had one on my 2013 Vegas...just dead weight(its laying on shelf somewhere in my garage). I took it off and cut the hose off short of hanging below the bike. Fuel recovery canister for overflows or should you lay the bike over.

No it's not. It's a plastic cover that is covering the ABS module. All new bikes sold in the EU/UK must have ABS.
