First, it's not the drain plug. As it's name indicates it locates the shift drum in each gear. the spring loaded plunger seats in the cutouts of part #13145 which is pined or otherwise locked to the shift drum. Without it the bike would shift around at will.
Have I been trolled?
Spring loaded plunger rides on the 13145 detent plate and is what locates and keeps the shift drum/shift forks in position for the gear selected.
This sort of looks like an cb175 honda. My first twin cylinder in the 70s.
Do i win?
ah. what's wrong with it?
It holds the shift drum in position.
I had a 1980 Maico 440 that had a weak spring there. Occasionally while landing from jumps the weight of the shift lever pulling down would down shift another gear. I would pull the spring out and stretch it to put more tension on the spring. The auto downshifts would stop.
