I need repair advice for removing a broken bolt

Anyone have any advice to give me before I attempt to remove a broken chain tension bolt from the end of my 97 CR swing-arm? None of the bolt is sticking out.

Re: I need repair advice for removing a broken bolt

I don't know how big (diameter) the bolt is, but you could possibly use a chisel, and hammer (carefully) (kind of weird to use those 3 words together [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] ), use the chisel on the edge of the bolt (if you can reach it) and use the hammer to "tap" it, to rotate it out. Having never drilled anything out, this is the best I can offer. Good luck.

Re: I need repair advice for removing a broken bolt

Ever hear of easy outs? Buy yourself a good set that you drill the stud out with a special bit , the use a straight shanked remover to yank it out....Either that or get a left handed drill bit and try it , you might get lucky....If all else fails , or you're not confident enough to tackle it , take it to any mechanic , he'll do it for cheap...

Take it to someone with a welder. Even a muffler shop in your home town can bail ya out. Just place a washer over the hole(centered). Weld in the hole so it comes in contact with the washer, and close it up. Next, weld a nut on top of the washer(centered). Next, get a socket and ratchet, and remove.

We do it all the time with 8 mm studs. Should be no problem.
