    Pretty dramatic example of bolt stretch, looks like you caught it just before the bolt would have fractured.

    My guess is one of the engine side cover mounting bolts.

    Almost too embarrassed to post it but it happens when you just don’t take the time to check.

    It is the bolt at the bottom of the fork that holds the dampener in place.

    $2.25 on Partzilla for replacement plus shipping. I’ll check my local hardware store, but I’m not too optimistic. Funny the copper washer is priced at $7.17 on Partzilla, normally $9.49 at the dealer.

    Not many folks have a calibrated pull.....

    Working with aluminum threaded parts one has to be REALLY careful.
