ID:	376879Hi can some of you experts tell me if I lost a screw here. Itís where my rear sets hook up to the gear box. I was having a hard time shifting and I think this is why. There is nothing holding the rearset tight to the gear box. Thank u so so much.

    Yes, there should be a pinch bolt going into the hole.

    However, it is splined and can't imagine the lever actually spinning on the shaft.

    BTW That hole is milled completely through the lever. Are you sure the bolt isn't on the other side?

    yes there is no bolt, But I figured out the problem with shifting. my shifter is not springing back so I was trying to shift it up again and it would not shift. If I give it a little push down I can upshift again. does anyone know how to fix this. the dealer is 90 mins away. Thanks so much guys

    no but I think I know what happened. I had some bozo detail my bike and he rusted my chain and there was a little rust on that pinion that the rearset attaches to. I put some wd40 for now and it seems to be better. I would of taken it for a ride but my austins racing pipe will wake my neighborhood. I was worried cause I thought my tranny was messed up but after days of wondering what it was I figured it out that it was not springing back, while i was riding I could not tell. do U have any Idea where I could buy that missing bolt? thanks so much again.

    A bolt from any local hardware store will work perfectly as long as it is the proper size and pitch. It is metric, probably 10 mm as those pinch bolts are damn near universal on all bikes.
    Current rigs:

    '16 Tuono RR -street
    '13 RSV4 -race
    '13 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special
    '13 Yamaha WR450F
    '12 GSXR 600 - race
    '07 GSXR 750 - race x 2
    '03 KDX 200
    '17 Tao Tao Hellcat - pit bike

    Thank you very much again, I fixed the shifting issue. It needed a little lube. Im so happy, I thought it was something bad. I will definitely detail my own bike from now on though

    The bolt head is probably 10 mm the actual bolt size in more likely an m6x1.
