I found some clips left over from my customization and I can't remember where they went, although I have a dreadful feeling they were part of the brakes.  Can someone help identify these?

I've taken a lot of K bikes apart and have never seen anything like that.

They look like they hold the spindle in place that goes through your brake disk pads on later K1100 front disk, they insert from the top down.

Cheers Gladstone!  That was right on the mark.  I remember now, a nice safety feature.  They prevent the retainer pins on the K1100 front brakes from unplanned ejection.  I've replaced them now.

I was thinking that but I have ever only seen straight clips there. Maybe they were lost and replaced with a hardware shop special.
