It’s a neutral sensing switch.

Is it absolutely necessary to put one in or can it just be capped?

Truck only cranks if you push the clutch in. So.... its useless in my opinion. I dont know if the spring loaded ball is important for smooth operation of the forks. My T5 didn't have that sensor/switch in the cover. In my experience one little thing missing, that doesn't seem important, normally cocks it all up.
