Default Engine Bolt

So...to make a long story short..I wasn't paying attention and i was tightening down my cage to my bike and snapped the engine bolt in half...ugh.

so my question, i've done bolt extraction before but I cannot for the life of me drill the bolt out in order to get it ready for the extractor tool.

Im probably going to end up bring it to the shop cause I don't want to mess it up anymore. So my question is...can I ride this bike with the broken engine bolt to the shop??

You wanted to know if it was safe to ride without a certain engine bolt in place, yet didn't see fit to show anyone which bolt?


A pic would help.

Ha thanks zmds lol..

I'm bringing it to my mechanic to see what he can do...worst part about all this...I took off the cage since the bolt broke..and I went down...I moved back into childhood house/town...and this literally 6inch deep puthole came out of no where...I was so close to saving it and the handlebars ended of crossing up. I hope my rims isn't bent
