Need help identifying a part on my KS.

Folks, I need help identifying a part for my bike that I may have accidentally broken. Looking from the front of the bike, it appears to be a sensor located on the right hand side right next to the side fairing.. It has a point on it. It appears to have been popped out due to trailering and the pointy piece seems to be somewhat bent. Not sure if it's broken or not or what it may affect. Thanks in advance.

Jonathan:

I think it is your ambient temperature sensor. Is it on the left front side?

Thanks Bruce! That's it. Should not be a big deal then, hopefully.
