Its an integrated octane booster for more power. Its how his bike accelerates so fast

Looks like it is attached to the radiator? Maybe to hold more fluid to help keep the motor cooled during long motos?

First answer already nailed it, oil cooler which a lot of the bikes have now. The only thing they ever do to get more radiator cooling is to mount a fan on the backside but nothing else

picture from pitbits - The factory Kawasaki team has moved their oil cooler around to a few different spots of the year but came up with this position and carbon fiber ducting last year. It's pretty trick. Michael Lindsay

Kawasaki sourced these parts themselves and they had to plumb the cases for it.

Haha, yes every friggin year! And for the third year straight, I say that this mounting position is bullshit and as always someone will reply that I have no idea.. 3, 2, 1, GO

Previously, it was mounted behind the cylinder. I think where it's at now is better.

Does the bolt torque need to be calibrated for the cooler oil? Is there a “sprocket bolt torque-oil temp” table somewhere?

Thst‘s true! But now they funnel warm air from the water radiators to the oil cooler. They could do that by just mounting it parallel behind the radiator and by that have a much larger crosssectional area for the airflow (and achieve the same heat transfer with a small cooler). The only reason for this mounting position I can think of is weight distribution.
Maybe you could ask them to settle this age-old question once and for all?!?

It's hiding the nitrous bottle.

was working on putting one on my 250f, easy to pick up aftermarket ones for scooters etc quite cheaply
plumbing is tricky,

think its a very good option for high rev small oil capacity 250f's.
