Default Re: Bike Fell over

Remove the motor.
Using a dremel with a cut off wheel , or a very thin cut off wheel on a 4/12 powered tool , or a hack saw.

Slot the center of the flush stud or bolt not worrying too much about the soft aluminium engine block.
You must slot deep enough to reach enough of the broken stud or bolt, About 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
Use a screwdriver slightly smaller than the diameter of the stud or bolt to unscrew the broken piece.
To Replace the broken stud or bolt , take the other good one to a hardware store and buy an exact replacement. Or replace all the engine mounting studs or bolts with higher quality American stuff.
