How to get out broken bolt stem???

I was changing all the fluids on my quad yesterday so I was replacing the oil filter and one of the bolts break on me when I was tightening the cover that the oil filter goes in at. So half the stem to the bolt is screwed in the housing and I don't have anything to grab it with.
I mean, it's in there.

Is there a special tool to drill it out or anything? It's kind-of skinny so it would be hard to get in there.

nope. It was all the way in there and I was tightening it up and it broke about half way down the stem so half of the stem is embedded in the hole. (not that far in)

EZ out or left hand drill bits. A lot of times a left hand bit will spin it right out unless it is really torqued down.
