    Missing bolt on gas tank under seat?

    Hello so on my 2018 Tuono v4 1100RR when I was replacing my tail light to and integrated, a bolt fell to the ground and it was one that I had not removed during the process of disassembling the rear end. Under the seat next to the little Bosch do dad there is an empty bolt hole next to where the wire runs that seems to fit it perfectly but I'm not sure if that's where it belongs. Any insight into this would be awesome! Thanks.

    Without seeing the bolt nor a description of its length or size, it would be hard to speculate where it goes.

    Post a picture of the bolt and the suspected mounting location.

    My 18 Factory has the same threaded hole without a bolt in it. I also wonder what it is for. I have not seen any bolts falling out yet.

    That empty bolt hole is left over from the older bikes that used a larger IMU sensor box, leave that bolt hole empty.
    Post a photo of the screw you found.
