Help identifying bolt

I had to trailer my 1198S last night after accidentally leaving my key in the P position all day. Today I find a bolt (see pic) on the deck of my trailer. It's about 1 inch long, and fits same hex wrench as seat bolts. I did have left upper fairing off and had removed bolt for battery retainer. I know the battery retainer bolt is back in place, and have checked fairing bolts and don't see any missing. Can't imagine its a coincidence that I found this on the trailer. Anyone know where this belongs?

Might be one of the four that hold on the passenger pegs?

It could have come from many places though.

Safest thing to do is just give the bike a thorough once over for peace of mind

Difficult to be sure without a size reference, but it looks like a 6 mm diameter bolt (not 8 mm as for the footrest hangers). This should take a 5 mm Allen key if it is 6 mm dia.
If so, there are many bolts this size in that area of the bike. The one which retains the battery you mentioned would be one.
There are also three similar bolts holding the battery box on, but they couldn't have fallen out if the battery was still in situ. And two hold the regulator on.
The engine case is also held on by similar screws. Pay attention to the one down low which holds the earth lead, as these aren't always all that tight.
One on the RHS of the oil cooler - really too many to list. As suggested you will have to go over the bike very carefully.
Good luck!

Don't forget the four that hold the headlight assembly on the fairing stay...or maybe one of the timing belt cover bolts...

Thanks for the suggestions so far. Haven't had a chance to check all these out yet, but do know that it is smaller than the battery retainer bolt (or at least it is on my bike). Takes same size Allen key as at the bolts at the top, rear of the upper fairing (next to where your leg is). Probably take me a couple days to figure out where this should be.

In the mean time, I've found four other bolts in various places that are missing.... all related to holding plastics on. Nothing major, but looks like I'll putting together a shopping list of bolts this weekend. All the important fasteners (engine, brakes, controls, frame, etc.) seem to be in place.

Pat1098 pretty much nailed that one. Those are the locations of that bolt. If you were working on your battery I would check there first.

Biggest size for the fairings should be a 4mm. I'm not doubting you, but that looks for sure to be a 5mm and I have yet to encounter a 4mm like that on these bikes. But if it is indeed a 4mm, then I have no idea where it would have fallen from.

Actually, I just had a mid post epiphany: check to see if it hasn't come from the central nose fairing mounting position. I can't remember if that bolt has the delayed threading as the battery box does, but if you are missing other fairing bolts, then it's worth a shot. A 4mm would be involved in the body work and shouldn't have come from anything mechanical/major. It's down under the front of the nose fairing, under the dust cover, and it mounts the nose fairing to the headlight assembly. It's kind of tucked in, so look carefully to see if it's not missing.

I was inspecting my bike after a ride and found the same bolt as shown pic. I'm not sure what size it is but it fits a T25 bit. Without removing the nose and inspecting the nose area and triples. I can't find anything missing.

I'm currently removing the nose to get a better look.
