Where Did This Bolt Come From?

My guys are prepping bikes for a tour starting Sunday, and one of them called me over. He pointed out a Phillips head bolt laying on top of the v-junction between the front cylinder and case.



I looked around without pulling the tank and didn't find where it may have come from. I felt around and everything I could touch seems tight.

Bike runs fine.

Before I start pulling the tank and poke around more I wanted to see if anyone might have a suggestion about where it might have come from.

Thanks!

Looks like one of the two that holds the chain guard on.

:embarassed:

Just found it.

I took the middle plastic cover on the front of the tank off, the one with two push-pins, and it holds the metal spreader bar to the front top of the tank.

How it came off, fell and stayed in that place without vibrating off is a mystery.
