What's this?

Hi Guy's, this is my first post here - been a lurker for a few months now. I've recently bought a 2000 SP-1 and give it it's first wash today. After washing the bike I found a small uniquely shaped rubber tube on the ground beside the bike. Any ideas what it is, where it comes from and what it does? The bike seems to run fine without it. Any ideas?

It goes on the back side of the head lights.

They're headlight vents. Serious.
There's two on the back of each light.
