Hello, I am new to this site and have only been riding about a year. Had a mid-life crisis last year (I'm 54) and as a result took a motorcycle safety course and now own a 2001, VSTAR 1100. My question has to do with a broken bolt on the Light Bar. It broke off inside the thread. How would I go about getting the broken piece out? Can I just use a small drill bit and drill it out? Thanks for your help.

I think that might work if you drill carefully. You may have to 're-thread' if you have to use a bigger drill and damage the threat. I think that's the greatest problem (not damaging the thread). So, good luck, Rick!

Ride Safe ;)
