    so i assume it broke off flush with the head?
    ie:nothing to put vice grips etc on?
    you can try an easy out, and if that doesn't work you can drill it and tap it, but honestly, you'd prob be better off taking the head to a machine shop right now...

    things stuck in aluminum have a way of going from bad to worse REAL fucking fast, especially if you're not very experienced in this sort of thing...
    it'll prob be less than 50 bucks, and done perfectly

    You won't get a clean drill/tap on a hardened steel bolt stuck in an aluminum head.. the drill bit will slip off the steel and make a mess, no matter how steady handed you are.

    You removed the other cap bolt and took the cap off, right? Broken flush with the aluminum?

    If this is the case, :werd: on the machine shop.

    I gaurantee you there are ZERO aluminum bolts in your gsr head. Nice try though. Go have the machine shop do it for you. My .02

    you're gonna spend more than 30 in drill bits, ez outs and taps alone
    let the shop do it
