What bike?

 

Are there any holes in the left case half big enough for the bolt to have made it thru into the center case? I'd go fishing with a telescoping magnet.

 

Look amongst and behind all the stator armatures to be sure its not hiding.

 

Be sure its not magnetically stuck to the flywheel.

It is probably stuck to the flywheel magnet as it's hollow behind the side you can see. Either that or the po lost/stripped it and just over tightened the other ones to compensate. Those may have loosened over time and now it's off. My bet is on it being stuck inside the flywheel shell
