Any suggestions for a broken bolt?

So I was messing around with my machine today and decided I wanted to move the shift and clutch mount a little. Well when I went to re tighten a bolt that holds the clutch mount in place, the POS snapped on me ( I didnt even over tighten). So now I'm left with half a piece of the bolt stuck inside the lower part of the mount. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to remove this? There is like a tiny bit sticking out on the bottom end...too little to grasp it with any of my tools.

hollow (hollow in the middle too)

Can't make it out very well but I can probably drill it out.

If the broken portion is threaded, you can use an easy out. Other option is file/cut a slot on the bottom of the bolt so you can unscrew it out with a flat head.

I would try sliding the grip/Brake assemble off the handle bar. That would may allow you to get to the back side of the bolt for easier or better access. Another option would be to Tig weld a rod/bolt to the exposed end.

Soak the threads wth some WD40 before you drill it. It will make it easier to extract.

Left hand drill bit? I am assuming it is Aluminum since it snapped off... might be able to simply split it into pieces if it is hollow
