Afternoon everyone,

I was removing my clutch plates to renew the springs and one of the bolts holding one of the springs in sheared.  Is there an easy way to get this little bugger out? I don't really fancy trying to drill it out - is it easier to buy a used one?  Any advice would be appreciated. It's a '99 Mille.

Thanks

Afraid not - don't have many useful friends in that area! Might have to get it to the local bike shop....

Don't think they would charge much for doing that mate would take them about 5 mins

Thanks Mark - on the off chance (and after calming down) I just took a small flat head screwdriver and wedged it against where the head sheared off and gently tapped it with a hammer and it broke the seal.  I've then managed to unscrew the bolt by gently tapping against the rough edge of the bolt.  Thank god for that!

A sharp centre punch is my usual weapon of choice for that job, but whatever gets the job done Clap
