Clutch Cover Bolt Disappeared

Hey Everyone,

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?

Pictures attached.

Yep I managed to get one yesterday and retrieved the bolt. Also I put the bike back together with the old gasket, its not leaking. I have a new gasket coming next week and a track day this weekend so hopefully the old one will be ok for a week.
