Caliper bolt shook loose and missing. Do I need anything besides a replacement bolt?

This morning I found that my rear caliper is missing a bolt.

I see from the following page that I need, minimally, a new part #69182-04F00 (".BOLT").
2012 Suzuki V-Strom (DL650A) REAR CALIPER | Babbitts Suzuki Parts House

I have likely been riding with that bolt missing for a number of days.
Questions:
* Might anything else have been damaged?
* Should I order anything besides a new bolt as per above?
* Where can I find, or what is, the torque spec for this bolt?

It should be all you need. The front prong of the pad is out of the keeper and will need to be put back in place. Use 19.5lb-ft

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Your rotor looks fine- looks like everything stayed in track.

In the following post it's claimed that 69182-04F00 can be replaced at Home Depot.

Can anyone verify this?

Edit: Thanks for the responses, Kelly2012 and greywolf

It will fit physically. It's a hardened alloy steel bolt though. Most hardware stores don't carry them. A hardware store bolt will probably do for a few days until a proper bolt can be obtained.

Need some of this

I don't think I saw it mentioned, so I'll tell you that you need to get some of this stuff.

Just found that I have the same bolt missing on my 2014. Did the factory forget locktite??? I've never had the bolt out, so I know it isn't my fault.

I just got back from the local Fastenal store. They had the correct size in a hardened bolt. Total cost was $0.00. The guy said he was too busy to ring me out and said have a nice day! I did put locktite on the bolt.
