Talking How would you take it from here?

Gosh I missed that racing business and all those late nights in the shed

One of the footrest bolts broke in the thread. I have already drilled it to try and extract the rests of it but no luck so far. I do not really want to drill more, as I might start ruining (if not already done ) the thread.

Any idea?

It's from a rearset hanger. I can access the other end of the bolt but it didn't help. Will try again now that it's been drilled inside.

I am sure I could, I just did not think about it...

I have a brand new stud extractor that has never been used.
It is so never been used that I completely forgot about it

Cheers guys, will give it a go later

Please don't break the stud extractor in the hole as its a specialist job to get them out. I would not take the risk myself unless the thread is fairly loose. Drill the hole out out in gradually increasind increments until you can pick the threads out. If (like me usually) you don't manage to start exactly in the middle and you damage the threads then you may have to resort to a helicoil.
