Anyone find a local store that carries rescue bits?

Try Dennis' auto parts, or Johnson supply. Johnson is wholesale only but I can get buy there if need be.

One more thought if its not past the point of no return. Still need to get broken shifter off.I would use clamp style if can get one with same spline.drill hole through it and shaft.pin or screw it on.guess you could do that with stock one too..

No, it slides out through the clutch side. If/when you change the shaft order a new seal also.

In the future just use two scribes/dental picks to remove a screw that isn't bottomed out. Heating it up first if there is loc-tite on it.

I believe he said he snapped the shifter and bolt head off, leading to this nightmare

KTM holds on the kick starter the same way. I had the bolt break off and went through the same gyrations. I ended up carefully drilling out the bolt and using a tap to get the old threads out and re-cut the inside of the shaft. The whole time I was praying that it worked. Take those bolts out every so often and clean things up and re-loctite'em.

Yeah, too bad Kenny. Maybe he's saving it for next issue.

Some clips from the Cherry Bomb Hare Scramble last Sunday...

For any bolt/screw extraction PB BLASTER is a MUST. Might be a little late now with the busted Easy Out in play but still worth a try. I have had dramatic results with the performance of PB BLASTER, it is actually a product that performs as advertised.

Squirt that fuker down HEAVY and let is soak for a while and dig back in with anything you can get even a little purchase on, you might be surprised with the results.

I recently had a busted bolt stuck in the crank of a lawn mower and like you I snapped off an Easy Out like a dumb shit because I tried to twist it out PRIOR to soaking with PB BLASTER. After bitch slapping myself and giving the bolt a heavy soak with PB, I was able to spin it out using a small screw driver as a chisel of sorts.

Had I soaked the busted bolt with PB before attempting the extraction with the Easy Out , I would have had it out in under 10 minutes.

Good Luck.

Busted off bolts SUCK.......
