I need to send the bolt that held on the tag holder that was mounted to the diff. So Is there something in there that will leak?? I'm going to have him ship me his plug but need to move the bike before I can get his plug. #34

I took that off and installed a different bolt when I installed my side mount plate. Nothing leaked out. I'm not sure there's anything in there.
To be safe while moving the bike, put a rag or something in there.

#34 is a dummy hole. There is nothing in there but threads. You can remove it and ride down the road with out it. Thats what the DLP side mount attaches to.

I've heard it's a shock mount hole. I guess the hub is used on a few different applications, and one such application uses dual rear shocks from the fender struts to the hub and swingarm on either side.

:agree: That is what I heard it was for. Just stick your finger in there and see if it bottoms out.

You will get no light or leakage between the space you can access with the dif oil fill and or drain plug and the part 34 at issue here.

It is a phantom shock bolt that is not used at all in our application.

I had bolt 34 out most of the winter and had the hub flipped every which way when I was polishing it.

The only place oil wanted to leak out was the overflow pinhole at the spline.

Run as long as you like with bolt 34 out, it is trim/ dressing and as functional as the tank badges.
