    with the tank off, the rear cylinder of 2002 sportster has a missing bolt when i look down the rocker box. there are 3 bolt spots in rear cylinder, which the center bolt is the missing one, but only 2 star bolts in front cylinder. im going to find out from harley hopefully which bolt so i can replace it. has anyone had this prob. or know how important the bolt is? the hole is only maybe 3/4 to 1'' deep

    not star bolts but spline i meant to say
