Broke Subframe Bolt
I rode my bike into work one day last week, about halfway there while on the highway I started to hear a new vibration noise. It sounded similar to when my old crashbar broke due to the vibes. (SW Motechs). A couple quick diagnostics without slowing down confirmed my suspicion that the noise was coming from my crashbar. I looked at it that night before riding home and could only figure that one of the front mounting point bolts was loose. I was going to ride off to lake tahoe first thing tomorrow morning, so tonight I decided to go and tighten that bolt. It maybe was loose, not positive. I loosened, cleaned, relocktited it, tightened it. I still had the same flex and vibes. I found that my left subframe bolt had sheared. I was using the bolts that came from Twisted Throttle in the crashbar kit.
What's the best way to remove the sheared part of the bolt?
Do the EM bolts work with the Motechs?
