puttering and dying at idle

so I just picked up a malaguti commuter 2... not that it matters because I'm 90% sure this problem would be universal... There is a bolt missing where the pipe connects to the cylinder bottom end. There is a lot of play so I'm assuming this means a huge air leak.... would this be enough to cause the problem?

ok thanks..... I assumed this was the issue but didn't know if it could be something else.... do you know what size bolt I would need? Is this a universal part that can be found at a hardware store?
