I removed my badge to try out one of the 68 tank covers and - well I think a picture is worth a 1000 words. The head snapped off then trying to use molegrips this toffee screw disintigrated. Anyone gotta a miracle?

I snapped off a cam cover bolt and a fender bolt last weekend. Got the cover bolt out with no problem. Used a reverse thread tool to try to remove the fender bolt...and broke off the tool in the bolt.

I'm fooked.

HIM & KingBear,
There may be someone near you that does spark erosion.

BOLT REMOVAL

I broke a oil line bolt off in the cam cap yesterday but it cme out easy as the bolt was cracked.
I got lucky.

Don`t worry Mark.Nuts and bolts and screws only break when you mess with them. Thats why MY bike is totally stock and virginal. :-D

How the hell did you do that? Improper tool? My miracle solution is to use the proper tool every time. Tank badge screws are easy to take out, *** did you do?

You may end of having to drill it out, use a screw extractor etc, but it looks like there enough left to first try removing it with a pair of needle-nose vise-grips. I would spray some penetrating oil into the threads first.

Used the correct tool. Just one bloody turn too far and the head came off.
