missing bolt

Does anyone have exploded views of all the parts, even down to the nuts and bolts with part #s for this bike? Or can anyone tell me where to find this info at? My bike developed a slightly noisy vibration recently and upon investigating, discovered that a bolt has fallen out. Its kind of an important bolt because it keeps the front forks in place. I've stopped riding altogether until I get a replacement for it. Your help is most appreciated.

Just about any parts web site has them, I use cheapcycleparts.com, they have exploded views of all the parts and part numbers, prices.

Is there a matching bolt you could remove, take to local hardware or fastener store and match up for a quick replacement? View of forks here

thanks to everyone that replied already. This is a good start. I should be able to figure this out now. I knew asking you guys for help would be beneficial.

What bolt did you loose? If it is the upper or lower tripple tree you can get one a Ace Hardware.

after looking at it again and matching it up with the diagrams from cheapcycleparts.com it turns out that this bolt holds the holds the bracket in place that the front left turn signal attaches to and also holds the left side of the front head light. This is where the vibration was coming from, but not as critical as once thought.

thanks again for stearing me to a website where I could figure it out. I have the parts I need on order.
