Re: Missing bolt - exhaust shield?
Mine doesn't have a spacer, but the head of the screw is flatter and wider than a standard sheet metal screw, kind of like it contains its own flange. Possibly if you experiment with some screws you have on hand for the right diameter and pitch, you may be able to get something at a local fastener outlet, although you may prefer to keep it all BMW. By the way, I got this bike when it had about 90,000 km on it already, so I can't say for sure if that is original, although it looks like it would be.
