That's a trashed cam chain guide. That was left between engine block and barrels! The other parts made their way to bottom of oil pan. Lot of hard miles on that engine.
They look like this new.
Good Luck with your project.

If you take a look in the center hole of the cylinder block you will probably see a #6 screw holding the remaining piece of a chain guide.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Looks like an inside chamber component of a 'hookah- pipe'. Or possibly a cam chain guide....:)
