MIA Vortex Shifter Bolt....

Not sure if this is where it goes, think goes here since was a mod to bike.
Mods feel free to move if wrong spot.

So the other day I went to meet one of my friends along with his girl and kid at fashion valley mall. Ended up riding there and as I shifting over onto off ramp and downshifted felt the shifter all weird. Pulled into another mall (mission valley) since was closer. Parked my bike, hopped off and looked at the shifter. Low and behold nothing was there holding it to the bike other that the rod.

Called my buddy and we looked for the bolt for about an hr to two hrs along the road and on the freeway. Needless to say we never found it. Well we found a landscaper and who happened to have some string. We used it to tie the lever down. So now I have a bike that has string tied to it....does anyone happen to know where I can find the bolt and washer I need to put the her back the way she belongs.
Its the F-101S bolt and the F-106NW washer from the picture shown below.

It's ok usually when we get worked up like what you went thru looking for that bolt & washer your state of mind causes you to miss a simple solution like the one I suggested we all been there so no worries what you got to do is use blue locktight with rear bolts cause they tend to get loose and go bye bye

Yeah I should have used some on those bolts but figured it didn't need them since wasn't told to use on instructions. Lesson learned, definitely will make sure to put some loctite on them all when i get that bolt in.

Make sure to use the Blue and not the Red why cause with the blue it's easier to change the position of the bolts then take them off then and putting them the Red is way stronger and it's for permanent bolts
