Throttle Body Brass/Bronze ring

It's just located above the throttle body caps and its a bronze ring with groves. Does anyone know what this is? Can it be replaced with a black one or removed easily and painted? It just seems to stick out like a sore thumb to me and Im wondering if anyone else replaced or painted theirs?

The brass ring itself is pressed on, can be removed to paint or powdercoat if wanted

Wood drift. To clarify, a drift is a punch, not a chisel. A chisel is sharp and you don't want that. A wood drift is a punch of hardwood or a metal punch with a dull, flat end.

As Ribby said basically just a piece of timber, tapped with a hammer, the idea is any bruising at point of contact happens to the timber not to whatever you are driving off.

Freedom 40 I take it you maybe slightly younger than some of us, on an old carbed bike that brass ring would unscrew to remove the throttle slide & needle.

I would think a brass punch would work also.
