'08 690 SMC mystery part from fork seal replacement

2008 690 SMC on TKC-80's...yep, its my son's adventure bike. This has the WP forks.

Last week he got a leaky fork seal. Tried cleaning out the seal but it was toast after D2D. Popped the fork leg out and Jr dumped out the oil into my bucket whilst I grabbed a beer and the specs. Came back and popped out the dust cover and seal. Put new seals on and dumped/pumped oil back in to appropriate level. Put it all back together and installed. Easy day!

That is until I went to empty the bucket and found these two shiny gems at the bottom!

This spring and pin look important! Anyone?

Francs, thanks for looking that up. Guess I gotta tear his fork apart and see whats in there.
