Wow it pays to be a woman:lol: I did mine all by myself:prof: and no problems of that nature ever happen to me:p

left hand drill bit.. should come right out. Mske sure you center punch the starting point, and take care to drill straight, .. Use a drill stop collor to keep from going to far.

We got it out and installed the tank, yippie! Mucho More Mileage!

I thought the samething, lol

It _does_ pay to be a woman:p Just did my clarke today (yes, I did it myself:smirk: ) No broken bolts. When I worry about how tight something should be I put some loc-tite on the thread and do the German precision (Gutten tite). If there is any purchase on the end of the stub, you may be able to 'tap' it out with light touches using a small nail set (no, don't ask why I think that might work:rolleyes: ) GL

Already fixed and SOOOOO happy with my extra mileage. And it withstands a decent fall :thumbsup:

I'm glad it worked out! (literally) I broke a bolt on my ducati pressure plate spring cups once when I misread the torque specs. Its that last time that I 'didn't' use loc tite for when I am in doubt. In my case, the head broke off right at the hub but I could wiggle the remaining stud in its threads. By carefully tapping in a counter clockwise direction with a nail set, I was able to work it out a full turn. the rest was easy:-) GL
