Hi COG fellows! I am only about a quarter of the way to getting to the valves on my bike and accidentally removed a screw that I’m not sure what it’s called so therefore cannot find the torque spec to retighten. Does anyone recognize which exact screw this is who could help me? Photo below... It’s directly underneath the bottom right crankshaft sensor cover screw. There are two of them: one on the left, one on the right!

I believe it is one of the many bolts that hold the crankcase half's together.

 Thank you for that, that’s what I also think. Any idea what the actual bolt’s called so I can look up the torque spec? I cant find it in svc manual

Look in the service manual in the engine disassembly section, you might find it there.

Perhaps it's one of these?  If so, service manual says to apply molybdenum disulfide oil, and torque to 35 ft-lb.

Shredran, may I respectfully suggest that you do yourself a favour and finish off there by putting your bike back together, for reasons which are apparent.   :beerchug:
