U just need to drill out the head not the shaft enough to slide the cover off.

Often time its the head where all the resistance builds up and one the item is removed, there is enough of the shaft to loosen by hand or w pliers.



...now in a moment Bevo may be in here making a joke about sexual innuento...

Correct. the head is what is holding the cover on. Then you will be able to pull it off.

Use a drill that is about the same size as the O.D.(outside diameter) of the bolt head. Take it slow since the corners of the hex head will be grabbing the drill bit.

That bolt is blue loc-tited in.
If you drill off the head, it'll make it REALLY hard to get the rest of it out.
I know we don't open till Tuesday, but if you don't jack with it anymore I can probably get it out pretty quickly and probably at no charge.

Even when new, it's recommended to use an impact driver to break the bolt loose.

my point being if it was already removed then the loctite wont matter anymore so drilling it out could be effective i had to put a flat head across a allen i had stripped then used the flathead screwdriver to turn it, had to slightly hammer it in

The loctite is put on thick from the factory.
Unless it's cleaned very well it'll reactivate with engine heat.

If you're determined to do it yourself, try using a Torx bit driven into the allen head to get it loose.

That is EXACTLY what I was gonna say. Find the bit that fits in the hex then grab the next size up. Hammer it in till it bottom out then VERY carefully remove the bolt. You only get one chance.

Yeah you would never get that remaining "stud" out of that output shaft if you drilled the head off..... You would end up having to drill out the entire stud and tapping the output shaft threads.....Thats MAJOR job with big consequences if you screw up.

You should let Patrick do it before you make it worse. Hammer an "Easy Out" in there and carefully back it out....You could also put a "tack" on it with a mig welder and tack an allen or torx socket in it.

If all that fails, get a small stick of dynomite, like maybe a 3-4" stick, try to get one with a long fuse, maybe 10-12", that makes it easier. Put the dynomite against the sprocket and bolt the sprocket cover back on snuggly. You will want to have the bike out in the driveway to do this, not in the garage. Light the fuse and quickly run around the side of the house. In about 10 secs, the bolt will likely be out. Problem solved........Oh and call the insurance company and say "it broke".
