get an easy-out.. find them at lowes, quite cheap. looks kinda like a drill bit. youll drill a small hole in the broken bolt, and use the easy out to counterscrew into it , then back it out of the threads.

A drill and a extractor kit will help. Atleast it's not a broken frame slider bolt/ engine mount bolt LOL!

Yeah, as with any loc-tite it should only go on a few threads..... not all of them or you will never be able to break the seal.

Had this happen a few months back when I went down at the track, I snapped a spool. FYI, not to put down anyone's advice, whatever you do, do not waste your money on an extractor kit. 9/10x it will not work unless its under perfect conditions and it costs between $40 and $50 for a kit. Your best bet is to find a local machine shop or someone that welds. The machine shop will have welding rods specifically for broken bolts. I went to the machine shop down the road from me and it cost me $10, they just had me pay for the rod as I had some other bolts to be extracted as well. Good luck

Being a machinist myself this is the best advice so far. If you think the bolt is hard to get out, break that easy out/screw extractor and see how hard it is then.

For future reference, heat will release loctite. It turns it liquid again.

If you use an extractor correctly, it will work 9/10 times. Though, you want the type that uses a pilot drill and a separate extractor. It's a worthwhile investment because you WILL use it again and again.. And you can get them for much less than $40.

Anyhow, I snapped a spool off my swing arm as well. The piece left inside was flush with the swing arm surface and broken at somewhat of an angle. The extractor got it out without a problem! And it had loctite (blue, not red) on it as well.

Machine shops work wonders on stuff like that. I've used them for years for little things like this.

also anytime you're taking off a bolt that has loctite using a hair dryer to heat up the area and loosen the loctite works great. BTW blue loctite is the way to go on most everything on the bike :fact
