Broken crankcase bolt

I was wondering if anyone has had this problem before. It looks like it's the bottom crankcase bolt and the nut looks like it was sheared off. I bought the bike last year and don't remember seeing anything missing in the area, but can't be sure if I even looked to see if the nut was there. I guess my concern is whether it might be a bigger problem or possibly a one off type of thing. My riding style is mostly commuting and some windy roads but no off road.I am a bit on the bigger side but I don't think that my weight could break that bolt.

can you mark the area you're talking about? I'm not seeing the problem.

A less out of focus image or two would also help.

Sorry, it is pretty bad. I hope these explain a little better. The one with the arrow is pointing to the bolt that has slid out, and the other is the hole where the bolt was which is behind the LH foot peg. I wonder if A) the bolt is going in the right direction and B) could riding have sheared the nut off, or something else maybe and could it happen again.

It's a motor mount bolt. If it pushes all the way in, there must be a nut missing on the other end.

Agreed. There was a 10mm flange nut on the RH side. The footrest mounting plate has prevented the long (10x275) bolt from vibrating out.
I believe you need either a 08319-3110A or a 09159-12054. One is 12mm and the other 10mm. You need the 10mm one.
