I need one motor mount bolt - anyone got a spare?
I had a "running out of gas" problem - turns out the carburator float setting was way off. I took the bike out for a shakedown cruise, and suddenly it developed this terrible sounding vibration at mid-range throttle.
OH NO! What have I done now? I couldn't identify the noise, it didn't sound like lower end, nor upper-end either. The bike ran OK, so I nursed it home, and commenced head scratching.
Then I found the problem - one of the front motor mount bolts had come loose and fallen out. The other front bolt was loose, and would have fallen out if I had driven it much further. Both rear bolts were nice and tight.
The hardware-store bolt I put in temporarily looks really bad, so I need one of the "real thing".
