Leak, missing exhaust bolts

Could the missing exhaust mount bolts where they mount below the tranny cover be the cause of what I’m assuming is a transmission leak? The bolts must have rattled out and recently noticed fluid on the ground and seems to be coming from that area.

Yes. Very common on 09-13 baggers. When you put new ones in, if you buy the OEM ones froma dealer, they will have some blue lock patch on the threads. After you put the bolts in, make sure you check your trans fluid level.
