    You can try using an extractor, but with a heavy duty bolt like that it may not work. Another option would be to weld a nut on the end of the broken bolt and take it out that way.. that should work but be very careful when welding it..

    i was told to drill and tap the bolt then to wind a bolt in because the crank bolt tightens the opposite way to normal bolt so in theroy it should untigthen as the other is tightened

    Hmm I've never seen a crank bolt that had left hand threads.. perhaps that's why the bolt broke if you were trying to tighten it accidentally..

    Honda motors do not have reverse threads on their bolts. So i would say that, that is why you broke the head off your bolt.
