If there's still some stud to work with a capable shop can get it out.
Too often I get the broken/stripped fastener after both the owner of the bike and his "friend next door with some tools" have hacked at it.
It typically doubles the cost once I get it because I have to use extreme methods to extract the fastener.
On the Harleys in particular it's a real issue because the steel stud has literally welded itself inside of the aluminum head.
Jack it up too badly and you're looking at replacing the head.
Now, you might get lucky, but then again, you may not.
My 2 cents, ymmv.
I hope he can get it loose. Why don't you go help Patrick?

1) I help people regularly, in everything from free advice and technical help to doing small jobs regularly at no charge.
2) This is what I do for a living, it's how I feed my family. Plus, after working 60 plus hours a week, the last thing I want to do is make a house call.
Even now, I'm trying to help save him some money by advising him to stop jacking with it before it gets too bad, regardless whether he brings it to me, or somewhere else.
Like I said, my 2 cents, ymmv.

I'm not starting a fight, just trying to help a member. I know you help when you can, and I wasn't trash talking you, your shop, or employes. Thanks for your 2 cents.
