I have looked in the parts manual there isn't any insert or bush. Dose anyone know what that bolt screwed to?
Like mgorman says............the hole you want to insert the bolt into is in approximately the 8 o'clock position, if you are sitting on the bike.
Worst case is the threads are stripped out, then you will need to HeliCoil the hole.
That bolt has a very low torque spec (can't remember right now) check your manual for the tightening torque.
