facepalm

Hey guys, need some help here.

Some idiot *ahem* over-torqued the frame oil drain bolt and sheared off its 32 year old head. Any ideas for how to extract the remaining bolt from inside the threads?

My Tiger's been down a few times. The AltRider bars I've installed have kept the engine and plastics very safe. The handguards and mirrors do get scuffed though.
