Clutch Cover Bolt Disappeared
I recently picked up a 2014 675r race bike and I was doing the first round of maintenance, fluid changes etc.. I thought I would open the clutch cover while the oil is drained and inspect it.
During removing the clutch cover I was down to the last bolt which is behind the frame. As i removed the bolt, it looks like it fell into the frame and I am unable to see it anymore, let alone retrieve it.
I have included two pictures of where I am talking about. Apologies for some reason they flipped 90 degrees when i uploaded them.
Has this happened to anyone before? Whats the best course of action here? If I get a new bolt and leave the other one there, will it cause issues with the swing arm?
Second question, it looks like the seal on the cover is a bit old and some tore away. I assume this could lead to a leak. Is this something that should be changed regularly?
