I am disappointed in all of these answers. That Cylinder is a multi-function device that requires some special knowledge to utilize.
A few of its uses and names:
1. Flux Capacitor. If your bike is equipped with this and you ride it at exactly 88 mph, hold on. You are going Back to the Future.
2. Fire Extinguisher. Yamaha did not want any of those BMWesque final drive fires so they installed a miniature fire extinguisher. Just in case...
3. Chaff rocket. If you are being pursued by a radar guided missile this device will discharge shards of aluminum and confuse the radar signal allowing you to perform evasive maneuvers and dodge the missile.
4. Government Mandated Speed/Location Monitor. Big Brother is watching...
Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.
