On the lower triple tree there are two bolts, one on either side, to adjust the steering so the bars don't hit the tank. Can't remember the name of them. Anyway, one of them is sheared off and quite stuck. What should I do? I'm worried that if I try one of those remover tools it will snap off and I'll be in even worse shape than I am now. I also can't get a perfectly square angle on it. I can take the entire front end off, which will be a minor PITA since there's no other reason to do it at this point.

Open to suggestions...

I appreciate all the great info guys. I found a new lower triple tree on ebay for $180 shipped. Couldn't pass it up. If this little issue was the only thing I was dealing with I probably would have spent the time on it, but there's way too much to do. Going to follow your tips on dropping the old one out and then just put the new one in there.

Thanks again!

I should also note that at some point in the future when I have more time I'll probably do the very patient drill and tap approach and then either store the spare lower TT, or sell it back on ebay.
