:eek1 That's pretty impressive right there! I just take my 650 for a spin if I want the 350 to feel light. It's pretty amazing how much lighter 80lbs or so feels!

FYI...that missing bolt is an M6x25mm with a 1.0 pitch. The bolt directly behind the kick starter is an exact match...though if you have a kick start only bike, I would find one from somewhere else.

Also, you shouldn't need any insulation on the throttle side. The air gap between the plastic or metal throttle tube and the bar already does that.
