Exclamation uugghh.

So I was inspecting my bike and I found out that my back bottom motor mount was missing the nut on the right hand side. I went and bought the correct size nut but not the correct size thread... So I end up stripping the bolt. Does anyone know where I can order that bolt or know how long it its so I can maybe get one at a hardware store?

Just cross thread something else on to it. It really acts more like a pin so you just need it to not fall out rather than be tight. If you have all your other mounts you'll be fine.

Make sure you get locking washers before it goes in, and thread lock glue

Yeah I bought a 10m nut that had that silicon locking thing but it had the wrong thread so it didnt go in all the way.

I would completely advise against doing this.

Def. try and get a new bolt/nut.

I was a bike mechanic and engine builder for over a decade before changing jobs...take my advise or don't. Just trying to save some hassle.
Replace it if you want but its not necessary.

Are you sure there was a nut on it in the first place & not just a threaded mount with a little excess bolt sticking out.
