Airbox covers and Gauge mounting say the bike is a '79 not a '77.
How does your VIN number start?

that is the Crankcase breather. It is attached to the fender. You have no fender.
You can do this to make it look good and keep bugs from crawling into your primary.

if the bike is a 79 then it's the correct nut and should have a plastic cover.

I replaced mine with a stainless one Shrugger shows what I intend to do with my primary vent. But the original didn't go to the chain, as the E vented into the RHS air box. If mounting filters as standard, remember to seal that hole
