Changed the sprockets over and went to give the chain adjuster a little turn and it snapped off in my hand Sad This has left me with about 2 inch of the bolt stuck in the swingarm leaving no chain adjuster.

The bolt has broke flush so looks like its gonna be a complete nightmare of a job getting it out as its prob been seized in there for 10 years.

Any advice or stud extractors welcome.

Drill and retap would be your best bet, i might have a wee set of stud extractors in work, your welcome to them, i wont be in work till monday tho, unless the weathers good tomorrow i can maybe take the bike a spin up in.
