I've been looking for a project bike to keep myself busy and I found it; 1986 ZX1000. This is my first ZX (in fact, my first Kawi) but I'm not a newcomer to bike restorations. This one was in decent shape but there are some things missing. Is there a bracket that attaches the front top of the engine to the frame? I have a hole there on both sides but nothing bolted into it.

Should there be a bracket here? If so, does anybody have a pic of it?

Not on the front center, only on the sides. This pic may help. Frame bolts and engine mounts in silver right below them.

That helps a little bit but what I need to see is the backside of that "loop" (bolt hole) on the side of the cylinder. It looks like there's a bolt in that hole. My hole is empty.

That's funny. I saw that on one of my zx1000's and thought it was missing a motor mount. So, i bought a couple on eBay just in case. Well was just an empty hole for who knows what...
