You can see just how little of its exposed as you can only see one bit of the thread. Its also in a very awkward place so to get it out id have to take the engine right off the bike
Did you use any loctite on the stud?
Take the motor off the bike.
There are a few ways to remove the stud depending on what tools
you have .
Do you have access to a welder?
You can weld a stud or nut to the broken piece then unscrew it.
Personally, I would file the broken end of the stud nice and flat.
Center punch the middle of the stud very accurately.
Drill a 1/8" hole making very sure it was centered and going in straight into the stud.
Once you have the hole drilled try a larger bit then reverse the drill and sometimes
the stud will come out.
If not drill the hole larger so it is the right size for an EZ out.
I find that the square EZ outs work the best.
Be very careful when you turn the EZ out as they break off fairly easily
and they are very hard steel so almost impossible to remove.
The last option is to keep drilling all of the stud .out and re-tap the hole.
