It must not of been in that tight.
1)First I sprayed it with penatrating oil..let sit over night.
2) Next day, I slightly tapped it a few times with a sharp nail
driver/punch. This was to make a dimple in the center of the busted
off bolt. A guy at the hardware store said this would keep the bit
from "walking" to the sides and messing up the threads.
3) I drilled it down about this deep __ with a 5/64" drill bit. I
then attached the #1 screw extractor to a small T handled tap wrench.
Started twisting it slowly counterclockwise. It came out very easily.
One note: I covered the area the best I could to keep out small metal
shavings, that was the hardest part. It was windy out and a real pain
in the ass.
Again thanks everyone! Time to ride
