My pull chord broke on my x2 Ninja Pocketbike. i took it off of the bike leaving the crossthreadedbolt holding on the Starter claw. i needed to get this bike to start so i took an air tool and spun the bolt to turn over the engine. the bolt then broke :mad: the bolt broke half way up the shaft and half of it in now stuck inside the bike. Any Suggestions?

Is there any way to grab the bolt with pliers or vice grips to get it out? if not you may need to Drill it and use a "Screw Extractor" set on it.

Good Luck!

Nick. :thumbsup: :) :thumbsup:

(edit)

You might be able to grind a slit in it to fit a flat-head screwdriver?

The threads in the rotating peice are completely gone and i cannot get the bolt out. i have tried putting the starter claw bolt back in with JB Weld but faild twice after running the bike for about ten minutes.

Can the bad part be replaced?? Are the bad threads in the end of the crank??

Get a 8mm bolt and run it through the starter windings to pop the starter off than take the plug out and push a thick shoe string in there to hold the motor from turning while you get the pawl bolt loose
