HELP: Shock Bolt Sheared Off

I was trying to remove the rear shock on my 2004 R1150GS Adventure. The bolt just kept spinning but wouldn't come out. I put a little sideways English on it and the bolt came out. Minus the threads.

Not sure if the PO put too much torque on the bolt installing it or if it sheared while riding, no idea. Either way, there is too much of the bolt left in the swingarm to remove the rear shock.

I've tried an easy out, but (I suspect) because the bolt was Locktite'd in there, it won't come out.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can get the bolt threads out of there?

Thanks in advance!!
