Rear exhaust gasket bolt gone

So I went out side today to warm up my bike before I went to work and I noticed that the rear exhaust gasket bolt was missing. Is this normal? I have already ordered a new one. It will take a while for it to get here. Will I hurt my bike if I ride it with one missing?

When you receive your replacement bolt, safetywire (lockwire) that clamp together. They should have bolts that size at your local hardware store if you don't feel like waiting. Someone on here might know the dimensions of the bolt.

When my bike is running I get white smoke from the right side exhaust and the right side also blows harder than the left. What could this be?

IF you are running stock pipes (not "True Duals"), the right pipe exhaust ALL from the front cylinder, and SOME of the rear, and the left pipe only blows SOME of the rear alone.

The stock rear pipe splits, some going to the left pipe by itself, and the rest going to the right pipe WITH the exhaust from the front cylinder.

Now, white smoke usually indicates moisture.
Being a (non-VRod) Harley, that eliminates the liquid coolant, because there is none.

Next up that comes to mind is condensation.
BUT, this would burn off fairly quickly.

So is the white smoke only at first, or even when warmed up?
And if warmed up, is it actually coming OUT of the pipes, or OFF the pipes (like some oil burning)?

Rear wheel removal on yamaha cygnus

Everywhere I read is wrong. For Yamaha Cygnus-X 125cc rear wheel removal
It is removed from the right hand side. Do not start dismantling the gear box side !
Remove 5 bolts of exhaust. Careful don't loose exhaust seal where it connects to engine. You may need friend to lean the bike over to access bolts underneath.
2. Remove main 24mm bolt on axle
No need to loosen brake !
3. Remove 3 bolts holding swing arm. That's the big triangular bit.
4. Pull off the swinging arm and on axle is special shaped washer. Note which way it comes off.
5. Pull off the wheel leaving brake shows behind.

I noticed some small seepage from the rear rocker box, just enough to catch my attention. The very rear and a little on the back sides. The bike has 24, 465 mile and was wondering if there is other issues...

Check the tightness of the bolts, it may have just worked a little loose but the worse scenario will be a new gasket. Not a bad job to do.
Use Hylomar Blue not a gasket sealer that hardens!

Replace rocker cover gaskets on 1990 fxr

To replace the upper rocker box gaskets is not too difficult. But, if you're replacing the gaskets between the head and the lower plate, this gets a bit more involved. You must remove the fuel tank as well.

To replace the top gaskets, simply remove the four bolts and lift the top and middle plate off the lower plate. The left rear bolt on the rear cylinder is the toughest bolt to get out. Sometimes there is a hole drilled in the frame to make access to this bolt easier. If not, you'll have to shorten a hex key wrench in order to get it out. With the top and middle plates our, replace the "umbrella valve" in the middle plate making sure you put it in from the correct side. Now place the outer gasket in the lower plate, the outer and middle gasket in the middle plate and set the top plate down on them. Wiggle the plates around a bit until you get them lined up properly with each other and tighten the top four bolts down a little at a time one each bolt until they're all tight. Torque to 80 inch pounds.

If you're going to remove the lower plate, first bring the piston of one cylinder up to top dead center on the compression stroke. Remove the spark plug and rotate the engine until both valves are fully closed. Remove the air filter assembly and backing plate. Remove the large bolts on the right side of the rocker arms Slide the rocker arm shaft out of the rocker arms one at the time and remove the rocker arm and it's pushrod. Notice that the rocker arm shaft have a recess ground into them. This is so the 5/16" acts as a lock to hold the shaft in place. It must be realigned on reassembly of the rocker plate. Once you get all the rocker arms and pushrods removed, you should have the pushrod tubes out as well. Remove the rest of the bolts and lift the lower rocker box plate. Clean the bottom of the rocker box plate and top of the head.

Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. Make sure you don't get the pushrods mixed up as they are all four of different lengths and will only work properly in their correct postitions. They are color coded for their proper positions. There is no adjustment of the pushrods.
Front intake --- YELLOW
Front exhaust -- GREEN
Rear Intake --- BLUE
Rear Exhaust --- PURPLE
Lower rocker box torque values are: 5/16" bolts 15-18 foot pounds
1/4" bolts 10-13 foot pounds

Is it possible to change rear brake pads without removing exhaust and rear wheel

Not really. The rear-brake pads rotate inside the rear-wheel drum. Once you knock out the rear-axle bolt, you then bend-out the rear wheel. That way you could avoid having to take out the exhaust.
If you have to lay the bike down on its side to facilate the wheel removal, do so.
