My left one seized and the head snapped. When I tried to work the stub out with vice-grips the bolt snapped. Maybe it was a crappy bolt or maybe I cranked it wrong during a first year hurried on the road chain adjustment. Regardless, I got a small extractor and started with a small drill bit to start after centerpuching the bolt in the middle.Tried the extractor, then a little bigger diameter drill bit. Start small and try to get the hole perpendicular so as not to damage the threads in the aluminium swingarm. I bought some new bolts from the Suzuki guys who of course said their bolts are better than Kawis.
