Tried to remove the seized bleed nipple in my caliper and subsequently snapped it off. Then I drilled it and put a screw extractor in it - which snapped off too. Now I have a very hard and undrillable extractor stuck too!
How to get it out? Spark erosion is, as far as I know, the last resort now. Look it up.
Excelent idea i can see this post geting masive. I was showing the Newark 250 to the Virgin bloke this morning and i noticed Cat claw marks on my brand new seat cover so i put a cardboared box broken down over the seat then i added a thick cover over the bike then i replaced the normal double bed cover over that to keep the dust of it . so with any luck no more cat claws scratching it .
got the wheels built up.got the resleeved barrels on the engine.had a look in the garage ,its to cold so i shut the door .will book a week off in march and get it built up and tested ready for the scorching hot summer ,oh hold on i have just woke up no summer again.

Now I have a very hard and undrillable extractor stuck too! I gave up and went back into the warm!! Anyone got any ideas how to get it out??
use a centre punch and hit the broken extractor with it, it should shatter it and then remove the pieces using some tweezers or long nosed pliers
drained fuel tank,sat a crank with a slightly notchy bearing in the premix.bearing now running free.removed carbs and reeds to fit 6mm spacers.swapped home made air filter for a proper one.had 6 attempts at stopping fuel leak from rear screw on fuel tank.no success at that so gave up n came inside for coffee before i loose my rag and stove said tank in with a sledge hammer.
