    Question Bolt missing?

    When cleaning my bike I found a hole that might have had a bolt. It is left of the right side foot peg. It goes through bottom of the engine. I didn't spot it in engine removing guide. Also, pictures in spare catalogs didn't help. It might be something that is specific to center stand assembly.

    In picture, red arrow points to hole.

    Answering to myself:

    It is a hole for M10x115 bolt that connects Dbl conrod sup. phor to the back of the engine. Dbl conrod itself is connected to engine cradle and footpegs. These bolts were also loose. Who knows how long the bolt have been missing.

    Installing new one was not easy. Brake pedal had to be removed and there was not much room for tool in other side to stop nut rotating when tightening.

    The same bolt was missing on mine! I thought it was a previous owner that had been messing with the bike, but if I was not alone, it might as well been this way from factory.

    Well, assuming this is not a factory flaw, the chanses that there would be three people that neglect to put back a screw this size are close to none. "Uhm, a 115 mm M10 left over; it must have come from my spectacles. No way in he.. it has to to with the bike I just reassembled...".

    Relax Holgi, I dont think you'll miss it. Unless you've bin fiddling with a pair of Pegasos before...;-)
