Did you tighten the bolt? If so, then the splines are probably worn out.

You'll probably have to buy a new reverse lever. The lever has the splines machined on the inside of the hole in the lever. There are matching splines on the reverse shaft that the lever goes on. The splines are the little grooves or notches that keeps the lever from slipping on the reverse shaft.

If the splines on the reverse shaft are worn off, then you will have to have a new reverse shaft also. Hopefully, the splines won't be worn all the way down and you can get by with just buying the reverse lever.

Ok, I didn't understand your question at first. The reverse lever bolts on a shaft on the bottom left side of the engine. Here is a picture of where it goes.

There's a piece that bolts right above the front sprocket guard that holds the reverse lever rod. It's hard to see in the picture below, but it's the little black piece above the sprocket guard.

Yeah, I think that piece is supposed to bolt in that empty bolt hole straight above the front sprocket in your picture.

Yeah, something like that should work, just anything to hold it up in place.
