How did you break that Eddy ? Is that a cylinder head stud ? Only one way to replace that brother, strip the while motor, head and barrel needs to come off mate.

G'day Eddie. If you were in the Melbourne area I could probably get that out in situ for you. I have removed broken threaded sections out of deep holes before. Depends on how tight the broken piece is in the bottom. You need someone with a lathe. Letting WD40 soak on top of it for a while (days) then tapping it with a neat fitting punch/drift down the hole helps loosen it. A heat gun applied to the bottom will also assist. A center drill in a neat fitting extension down the hole will get a hole started. Then a long series drill the appropriate size for an eazy out. Then an eazy out on an extension. Is it a 10mm hole? I have done it down a 5mm hole.

Eddy,you need to buy a Snap-on easy out kit.
It comes with guides so you get the very centre of the stud,very good drill bits and extractors that work well.
Good luck.

I am more worried about why it happens, also why are the bolts covered in surface rust.and wondering what the others are like .

I do not think I can get a straight drill bit in there ,its a bit skewed Mitchy ,defineltly will have to drop the motor,but if I can not drill straight I have a problem ,might see if a dremel tool with a drill bit works,not sure at the moment,need time to figure out a plan ,wife's street triple tomorrow, she is not happy.

Yeah, you'd not get in there with a hand held tool Mitch, ogrilp400 has a plan that might work in a lathe with some long tools, but I imagine those studs are tight ass f...k.
I had to remove my CR500 head studs and almost destroyed the casings.
Good luck Eddy, keep us enquiring minds posted and ride like you stole it tomorrow.

Mine weren't broken,I had a damaged 1000 crankcase and got a second hand 750 one from Carl and the studs for a 1000 are longer and required swapping over,that may be an option if the broken stud proves difficult to remove. It's a major either way...sorry
