Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Worst part is, the stud is broken ~1/8 of an inch in, and I can't get a drill bit to NOT walk onto the softer aluminum to drill it out.
Yep, Sometimes those things are a bear to get out. Try a small center punch to get you started, ( a GOOD one.) Buy a real good one if you have to. It's cheaper than a new motor or case.
