Nut came off. Please help

Nut came off long bolt. See pics. It appears to hold the engine to the frame. I need help identifying the size nut I'll need to replace.

Here's how to find bolt/screw sizes. Go to a parts site, plug in your bike, find the part in the diagram, then find it in the parts list. They aren't giving thread pitch any longer, in most cases. But this is a coarse thread nut.

NUT,FLANGED,10MM (diameter)
92015-1180

The same nut is probably used on other bolts, which may be easier to take with you to the hardware store, Lowe's, Tractor Supply, etc.

snatch the nut off the corresponding front motor mount, its the same. then you can match it up at a good hardware store (Not a box store)

Even Lowe's has thread checkers in the bolt aisle.

Those have been know to fall off for many years. Consider yourself lucky you didn't lose the whole shaft that the nut is connected to...

Thank You for the replies - I will take the suggestion of removing a similar nut - very thankful nothing fell off except what looks like a spacer - which i recovered, just haven't figured out how to put back in that space!

With the weight of the engine you can’t ever smack the darn thing out when you wanna remove it, probably wouldn’t move for a year that way.

You may have a hard time finding a flanged nut. I like to replace oem parts with oem parts if possible. When ordering small parts, shipping cost can kill you. I just drop by the local dealer and have them order the part, and pick it up later. I drive by my local Kawasaki dealer every 2-3 days.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
