Pair mod broken bolt.

So i recently did the pair mod and noticed a leak coming from the block off plate on the forward cylinder. I took the cover off and resealed it with some Permatex. when reinstalling i broke the head off one of the bolts. So my question is what is the easiest way to remove the broken bolt? Do i need to remove the forks and all? The bolt is in a really tight space and dont know if its possible to even get a T-Handle in there for an extractor.

Pull the valve cover. Then you'll have space on the bench to drill out the bolt and use an extractor.
Otherwise, you risk making a bad situation worse.
Only three bolts hold the valve cover in place. Note bolt colors, refer the service manual for the proper torque on installation.
Also the cover may be held on with gasket sealer and may not want to come off easy.
Just be patient and tease it off.

It's a bad feeling when any bolt shears off.
It's the feeling of unnecessary added work.

Pretty much. felt like i was going to throw up. And one more quick question. To remove the head cylinder cover do i have to mess with the cams or anything? manual doesnt talk about just removing the cover but the entire cylinder head assembly.

Download the service manual here:

Just start on P.3-9. Disregard the valve check section.

You can take the valve cover to a shop and them remove the sheared bolt if you don't have the tools.
