Today's "What the heck is this thing" question

I received one of these with my Dura-Ace ST-7800 shifters. I didn't install it as I didn't know what the heck it was. I figured it was an indicator of some sort to tell me what gear I'm in. I can see in this picture that it is apparently installed on the cable for the rear derailleur.



Am I correct that this is what it's for? Should I install it?

Steve

Uhhh, if you want to easily know what gear you're in, yeah. There's really no downside.

People sell them on ebay too. Maybe you can get 5 bucks for it if you don't want it.
