where is that on the bike?

I have a 650, I have never seen that on mine, and cant guess where we are looking on the engine.

Have you run the engine since you took that bolt out and put it back in?

If not I recommend you do not start the engine until you find out what that bolt was holding together inside the engine.
That bolt might have been holding something in place inside the engine?

I dont think I have the service manual on my computer here at work, but I will try to look it up when I get home tonight.

do you mean its inside the chrome cover? you took the cover off and its behind it?

I have no idea what that bolt is.
