i was a dumbass and dropped my bike, fairly minimal damage, but the right clip-on took most of the fall, and as a result the head of the positioning bolt that secures the clip-on to the underside of the tope yoke/triple tree sheared off, leaving the thread in the hole.
is there a way to remove the thread from the hole short of drilling it out and re-threading the hole? maybe drilling a hole in the bolt and somehow backing it out?
insurance is covering the damage (pipes, headers, footpeg, alternator cover (mine are already polished and may just polish the scrathces out),front brake and assembly, cable snapped, CRG bar end wiped out), and i plan on doing the repairs myself. i am guessing they will just replace the tope yoke, but if i can get the bolt out it will be fine and i can save the cost of the top yoke. if it has to be drilled and rethreadded i will just replace the whole top yoke.
any suggestions are appreciated! thanks in advance!
