So here is the deal I over torqued the 6mm bolts on the left side of my head (yz426) the old proto torque wrench apperently only clicks in one direction. I just kept on going until snap, broken.:p :ride: :moon: :moon: my question is can these studs be replaced and what kind of cost am I looking at?
Also can the bike run with out them? LOL

Of course they can be replaced. The head will have to come off though.

Thread out, as long as there's enough left to grip with vice grips. Otherwise, you're talking easyout.
