Need help - snapped bolt

Ok, so I'm just having the shittiest luck with this bike...FML

So finally putting everthing back together, putting the stator cover back on, and one of the bolts snaps in half as I'm tightening it, flush with the engine block. So now there is half of a bolt thread in there with nothing to grab hold of to twist out.

Now, what are my options? Will this still work without leaking without this bolt? (See picture for bolt location) Can I just use a gasket sealer to form enough of a seal? The bolts are kind of thin, so would an easy out tapper or whatever even be able to drill it out? Any suggestions or someone that could help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You'll be able to buy a bolt extractor to remove it. It will involve drilling a hole in the broken bolt and inserting something that looks like a tap, that will have a left hand thread. BTW, before cranking on the bolt again, apply some heat to it with a propane torch. Somebody may have used loctite on it previously.

I can probably get it out, but don't jack it up first by trying to get it out if you're unfamiliar with removing broken bolts.
That bolt is a bit small to use an EZ out. I'll probably try to use one of my reverse bits to walk it out, or drill it out entirely and remove the hull.

Or I can just pick your bike up again and take it back to Tim!

But I'm beginning to think it's possessed.

Most likely is non-perm lock-tite on it.
Most likely is to small to use an ex-out like said above.
Trying to drill it out and FUBAR'ing all the threads isnt worth it.
Take it to patrick and spend a little cash instead of alot of cash..

I think I know someone who can handle it with no problem, but U know the deal U gotta bring it to me, warning dont attempt to do it by yourself, Could easily go from a little problem to a BIG problem, worse than the other deal, might have to suck up to Brandy again, wait I just figured it out that,s what it is... U keep breaking chit just so U can spend time with her, I can handle it for free in a few minutes most likely

thats the answer that popped in my head, use a reverse bit, the vibes and such will probably walk it out hopefully

If you try to drill it and use an EZ out, you better know what you are doing. If the drill bit slips, even for a second, it will drill into the soft aluminum around the bolt hole and you will have a real problem.
As said before take it to Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited.
