noob question: What is it?

Hi,

I just picked up my new-to-me '94 750 and try as I might, between the owners manual, factory service manual, and Clymer manual, I cannot identify what is in this photo-- it is on the left side of the engine between the cylinders, toward the top. There is a black knurled knob whose function I just can't discern.

I hate to bother y'all but I just can't find it anywhere else. Thanks!
