Bluhduh Broken stud - Clymer made me do it

Following Clymer's 35 Nm generic suggestion for 10mm bolt and nut, I broke off one of the 4 stud bolts for mounting the engine guard on my 1100GS (broke off at about 20 Nm). That particular one (front left) seems to have an extra spacer (?). Any suggestions for removal/installation of these, while I rest my ham fists?

You may have mistaken the size of the wrench for the size of the bolt. The 10mm refers to the threaded portion. Those 'lil buddies only want about 8nm. It broke off flush or below, correct? Drill it out and use a bolt extractor. Do you have a dremel? Good, use one of the real small burrs to make a divot in the middle of the bolt to center the drill bit. Do not break the bit or extractor off in the bolt. The are not so easy to remove. If you want to get fancy, find a drill that is almost exactly the same diameter as the bolt and drill the bolt out. If you do well, you will be left with just a fine coil of threads left in the head that you can pick out. Worst case, you screw the threads up and put in a helicoil or other threaded insert.

Oh Christ. Guilty. Haven't we all done that at some point?

Ok, let me make up for it. The stud broke off right below the rubber mounting (#3). No dremel here, so I'm thinking that if I remove #3, then I can thread two 10mm nuts tight against each other, and turn the inner nut to get the stud out. Same two-nut concept to install a new stud.
How's that?

I see, I thought you meant one of the cylinder head protectors.

Pic from McMaster Carr Supply @ $2.00 ea.

Should be a low dollar item from the dealer too.
