Broken bolt on engine cap

So I was just finishing up putting my cams in and I broke the silver bolt that is under the valve inspection cap. Would it be nuts to run it with that broken? I think I can get it out if I pull the cap back off......Just wanted some opinions.

Actually neither. It is just another bolt around the perimeter of the engine cap itself.

one of the 8mm bolts that holds the entire cap on itself?maybe 8 of them and you broke the head off?is it inside or out side of the cover?myself..it would cause me too many sleepless night to not fix it but then again..i feel your pain of working on it so much and hoping you can get by.it may be alright if not fixed but its just a guess...i say fix it.and forget about it .hell i wished more of us teryx fruits lived closer to help one another in times like this.i know i get tired of fooling with mine and hate looking at it but i would work 2 days on getting someone elses right if having the chance.
