Hello everyone, I bought brand new Suzuki Boulevard C50 last year. The bike has about 3000 miles on the clock. I was washing it yesterday, and I saw a totally unscrewed bolt stuck between radiator tubes, by the left foot peg. The strange thing about it is that it has a unique mark. It has 3 short lines and 1 long. Also the thread is cut on both sides on the top. I looked around the bike for a couple of days everywhere, but I haven't found from where the bolt has fallen off. Here are some pics, hope some of you can help me. Thanks.

It is entirely possible that this bolt is "extra"......was dropped during assembly and just left there.
You should visit a dealer, especially since you are under warranty.
But don't be surprised if they can't find one missing anywhere either.
That looks like a "self tapping" bolt and is not all that unique.....in general.

P.S. Some of the pictures you used are HUGE. In the future, please crop and resize smaller.....regardless of where you upload them.

It's even possible that it was picked up off of the road, I see crap on the streets every day that I would never see from a car. I have dings on my helmet that I'm assuming are from flying debris
