broken bolt

Recommended Posts

Not a bright move on my part, but I overtightned the bolt that snugs the kick start lever to the shaft and it broke off inside the lever(threads)?

Does anyone have a tip on removing whats left of the bolt?

Thanks.

The easy answer is use a bolt extractor, but if you break THAT off in there you are doomed.

This is what I would do:

Buy the largest extractor that will clear the bolt hole. Remove the side cover and use a drill press to ensure the hole is centered. Thread the extractor in, and CAREFULLY attempt to dislodge the bolt.

You may spray with solvent and/or lubricant, any help you can get.

Sorry, but hope this helps.
