Fred, I was looking at the same fiche just a few moments ago. I called the dealer and the parts guy and I were looking at the fiche together. We decided that the #7 bolt goes in both holes, although there is no little dotted line from the #7 bolt to the lower hole. But if you look down at the written description of #7, it says you need two of them. Your opinion here. pk

THE MOST reliable way to " Travel FURTHER on reserve fuel " is to SLOW DOWN
No one is going very far on 3 liters gasoline at 75 miles per hour.
My F800 seems to get peak fuel economy at 45 to 50 miles per hour, in 5th gear. depending on wind direction, and inclination angle of the road grade I can maintain 75 miles per gallon, at 45 miles per hour.

The ANSWER:
Anybody that would rather RIDE than PUSH their motorcycle to the nearest gasoline supply.

Yup. Riding at 45 mph beats pushing at 1-2 mph.

I suspect you didn't lose the complex Torx countersunk dual-threaded bolt for the side stand (No. 6), but rather one of the two pan-head Torx machine screws for the bracket (No. 7). If so, you'll save a few dollars! Yes, there are two. See top two photos, below.







If No. 6 had fallen off your bike, your reaction would have been much more dramatic! You might want to apply blue Loctite to the threads of the two No. 7 bolts and torque them to spec.
