Ok strange situation here. I removed the front top engine mount bolts to mount some highway bars. On the right side the mount was not centered over the holes when I took the bolts out. Well now it's so close I cant get the forward most bolt back in and threaded straight. I need to push the top on the engine forward just a tad. When I say a tad I mean a 1/16 would be a plenty. Just wondering if this is even possible or should I just take my dremil to the side of the hole to make clearance? I can get all the other bolts back in just fine just not this one. It looks like it would clear but it won't. From the looks of the marks its always been off so I don't fear the engine has shifted I just need to shift it back some.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have never had that bolt out so it's hard to say. I would suggest put the bike in gear and have someone rock it a little back and forth see if you can get it to align
