Default Check Every Time Guys

I neglected to check all my fittings before the last three or four rides and its going to cost me!

On the last ride the bike seemed to be running rough at about 25 mph so I began fiddling with the mixture screw.

After the third adjustment I noticed in almost shock one of my rear motormount bolts was almost half way unscrewed and the other one was broken off.

So now I am down to no bike to ride and I havent ordered my engine for my second build yet. I should have ordered it last week.

My attempts at extracting the remains of the bolt that broke off flush have failed so far,and local machine shops dont want to touch it unless I split the motor in half.

I dont know if I am capable of that! Is there a bearing or something I have to press out to accomplish that job?
