My bike falls into the batch quoted so I contacted the Service Manager at my dealer. It's a 2 minute job to replace the bolt and no big deal. If you are not leaking oil or seeing the bike chew through oil, then don't panic. Get the bolt replaced for sure but it's not dire. I haven't had to top my oil up between services and have over 8,000kms on it. The Service Manager has had 2 bikes come in with this problem out of the hundreds of CBs they have sold. It is not a frequent problem that they are experiencing. Yes there has been bikes with problems but it doesn't have a high incident rate.
