Exclamation Help....Exhaust Bolt on my GZ250

Well I changed the 2 Exhaust Gaskets between the header and the block today. They're two little rings that go inside the valve and the header bumps up to it. Well the bolts the guy had in there were kinda rusty but not to bad so i tightened down in there so i could ride it around till I get new screws but after i tightened down there was still a little air comin out from what seemed the bolt....so i tightened a little more down and BAAMMM Bolt snaps. HOW DO I GET THE THING OUT NOW? Drill it out or what??? Easy solutiuon? and should the Bolts have locktite on them?

Billy,
IF you have a steady hand and experience removing bolts, than you can drill them and remove them with an EZ out.


IF you DON'T, your best bet is to not jack with it and let a professional remove it.

I can't tell you how many times it has taken me twice as long to remove a broken bolt / broked drill bit / broken EZ out because the owner tried to take it out first, or sometimes have to scrap the part because the owner screwed it up royally.

Happened to me a couple years ago, and now my trusty old '83 650 Nighthawk, with close to 60,000 miles on the clock is sitting in my garage collecting dust. I was replacing the clutch slave cylinder, when I over-torqued one of the bolts and it snapped, deep inside the cavity of the lower case. I was too lazy to use a torque wrench...

I got out my ez-out kit, but since the broken part of the bolt was deep inside, I could not see it. I started to drill, being real, real careful, but then... slip! I drilled into the lower case. I guess I wasn't careful enough. End of story.

Get a Pro to do it.

Edit: it's actually easy to do with the right tools, and if you take your time to be careful. But if it's a difficult condition as mine was, then yeah... get a Pro.
