Re: broken threaded rods
I too buy the meter long 10 mm rod useful for many applications on these bikes- cheep about 6 bucks in my area. bring a nut make sure thread cut is right. And to second 2Door - dremel tool - cut a slot to fit a screwdriver into for extraction. Depth of break determines your success. I have extracted mounting studs using this method 1/16th below surface. The deeper the break the smaller the dremmel wheel needed. In other words if the break off point is deep, use a used (smaller) cutoff wheel.
