Could I run it for a bit with one of the bolts missing?
Could I run it for a bit with one of bolts missing? I only got to test drive it for a bit. It seemed to shift through the gears fine correctly. I hope it doesn't have any hidden transmission issues that I missed. Then again I don't think that it could have anything major wrong with it because I changed the oil today and I didn't see any metal chips in it and it doesn't seem to be burning oil. The oil was down to the bottom of the glass "periscope". Could a bike with with 1500 miles on it realistically burn through half or three quarters of a quart of oil? Would that be a realistic amount of oil to burn in that many miles or would that suggest that something is quite wrong?
