Exclamation 2005 polaris supersport

05 550 supersport i took the chain case cover off and of course like ive read numerous times...the bolt that holds the bigger chain sprocket the head is snapped off... i drilled through it with a small drill bit and the easy out snapped....i tried drilling with a titanium drill bit but no luck getting threw the broken easy out...any suggestions... im hoping this bolt will fix the small clunk nose when i drive around 5 mph..

Try turning the broken piece the other way with a hammer and a punch. You should only need to move it a little bit to break it loose.

Or weld a washer onto the bolt than weld a nut to the washer and back it out. I do this for replacing manifold bolts on Chevy trucks
