I noticed that the first week I had the LT and was changing brake pads. Glad you asked the question Ron, I will be looking for the answer too. :confused:

(they must be for fender mounting options... I think 05's and up use them)
Precisely -- it's the '05-on lower fender stay. Also used on the '99-'01(?) R1100RT.

In NC, we used to have inspection stickers. We still have inspections, but no stickers. This was a great place to put a piece of plastic or metal, secured with a metric screw to hold the stickers. Kept the sticky mess off the forks.

As for why they're there? I've no idea.

My first thought was that they were used on the assembly line at some point(s).

Fender screws -- you can just see the corresponding hole in the leading lower edge of the fender in this '06 LT pic.





Also, on the inspection sticker -- they are still required here in VA. At least in the past (and probably still today) Morton's BMW includes with a new bike an aluminum plate cut at the right angle, and a replacement caliper mounting bolt and spacer sleeve to mount the plate behind the fork. The plate is barely visible above; only slightly more visible here, behind the fork on the R12, in front of the fork with the front-mounted caliper on the R100:
