Hey my name is Tyler, I'm new to the form so hopefully I am posting this right. I have an old 1980 Yamaha xs 850. I and cafeing it and had to take off the oil pan the other day and found a big washer looking thing. From what I have tried it is not magnetic. Does anyone know what this would be?

Is it fixed in position?...if so and it doesnt cause any problems I would leave it alone....also have no idea what it is....suppose it may have been a magnet at some time, looks like one from a loudspeaker, but has since lost any magnetism. Maybe fitted by someone in the past for exactly what you suggest.

My guess is that it is an "extra part" that has been laying in the bottom of the pan ever since it was new.

If it is attached, leave it alone. If it is loose, take it out and don't worry about it.
