kanuck69 If it is possible you could have someone burn it out and bolt(longer)in the fender. I broke a tap in an exhaust manifold (Recesed In Bike) and a mechanic "friend" of mine told me I was F^@%*! So chisle, shim , shake, smack, bang... Good luck!

newvn750owner the basketcase is just what I call the bike since thats how I bought it. a pile of parts in milk crates. p/o wanted to fix it up....you know how that goes. the broken bolt is in the frame where the rear fender mounts up. the remover did indeed shatter when it broke so im gonna try busting it out

I usually try one of those two suggestions.
Like said, they can take some time, but there's not many other options.

When first drilling a hole for the remover, I try to find a proper sized lefthanded drill bit. Sometimes that works to get enough of a hold on the broken bolt to remove it and I don't have to try the remover.

You have to watch out with those removers. Too small and they snap easily. Too large and the more you try to turn counter-clockwise, the more it expands the bolt in the bolt hole.

Is it at all possible to heat the area around the broken bolt?

newvn750owner not so lucky scoop. its broken inside the bolt hole.

Scoop Is there enough of the broken piece or broken easy-out to weld to? If so, weld the threaded end of a bolt to it. This works well if there is enoght to get a good weld without messing up the rest of it. Good luck!

broken broken bolt remover

so im smoking crack in the garage earlier and im trying to remove a broken bolt from the frame of the basketcase. clearly i have been smoking too much and i was using the broken bolt remover (drill into bolt, insert remover and turn counter clock wise kind) and now I have the broken bolt remover broken inside the bolt hole. So the remover is hardened tool steel and is stronger than my carbide drill bits. any ideas other than to lay off the pipe?
