Well that sucks and we've all done stuff like that at one point.
If you decide to do it yourself there are a few of us that have split
the cases on the rubber mounts and can help you.

Here is a link to pics of my rebuild (bad crank) of a 2006 sporty.
So you know what is involved.

I'll just add this,(been there and done thatt- split cases), when you reassemble the cases the manual calls for a special tool. Inserted through the neutral switch hole it holds back the spring loaded detent lever as the cases come back together. Don't try to hold it back with a screwdriver as it is easily b-bgent andvthen you will have to go back inside. I learned that a 9/16-18 × 2 1/3" hexhead nolt will do the job, readily availible for less than $2.00

Between the Manual and the Sportsterpedia...there is no better source.

That said, because we are family now, were you towing a boat up Mt Washington?
Perhaps jumping Caesars Palace?

Wait...the motor mounts fell out after bringing the tires up to pressure. ( don't laugh, it happens )

^^IMPORTANT^^ I had forgotten that. I am glad you reminded us all. Now I remember using a bolt like you did too.
