Striped a hex bolt - how to get out?

All,

While working on my new used ninja 250r, while taking off the fairings, i striped the big hex bolt on the low side of the left fairing. Now instead of the 6 sided hexagon, it's rounded out.

What do you suggest to get it off?

- I googled but only striped screws come up. Thank you for reading.

No worries, just trying to help. Dremels have fixed many problems for me in the past.

yes! sorry for late reply.

Extractor ftw. it was easy but scary. 1.) drill into hole a size smaller than extractor. 2.) use extractor. 3.) you win.

Also, PB the backside of the thread.

THANKS FOR THE REPLIES!
