Not sure why KTM went away from the circlip method as used on the 2T bikes. I've not seen one fail but I have seen a bolt come off an RFS motor and dump the front sprocket and chain. Very nasty.

So i managed to get it out in about 15 mins firstly drilled centre of bolt with 1.5mm bit then a 2mm bit then used the hole boring side of one if the easy outs then flipped it around to use the exactor thread the smallest one on the very slowest speed on the drill it actually got a bite of the bolt and turned it like a quarter then the bit snapped ffs then trom ther on a used a small flat head and gently tapped it round until it came out woohoo haha but i dont recommend them bits like a say the first one snapped with the drillon the very slowest speed

I think that is the mistake.
The smallest is the weakest. I'd be tempted to keep drilling until I'm getting close to the largest that will fit.

Yea ano mate once it happened athort am sure someone said tht lol and yea your right luckily a was able to tap it out as the drill bits wouldnt touch the bit of tip that was stuck in the bolt couldnt even get down the edge of it id probs suggest like someone said goin for the biggest extracter u can first and then still doin it by hand instead of insterting it in a drill on low speed
Few pics from the build top is were im at replaced pretty much all bolts lol just ordered whole new plastic set and battery hope to god it starts lmao

Lucky boy.


Its a cupped washer so its always good practice to replace everytime rather than re-use.
