Broken Handlebar bolt

One of the bolts that hold the handle bars is broken. My son went to tighten the acorn nut and it snapped the bolt. Can the bolt or I assume stud be replaced or do the handle bars have to be replaced?

Sounds like you need to give your son a torque wrench for his birthday

I agree. The bad thing is I have one here he could have used.

Does the threaded part on handlebar come out or is it made to the bar? If it comes out I only need to replace it with a piece of all thread.

Unfortunately it's part of the bar:

Is this a DIY type job or best left to a Honda Dealer? The bar removal appears straight forward just not sure of throttle and clutch controls.

Couple of connectors, 2 nuts, and some switch housing hardware. Pretty easy

Just be sure to use a JIS (Japanese industrial standard) screw driver and not a Phillips head or you will most likely strip the screws that hold the switch housings on.... then you will be replacing those too... lol

I learn something new everyday. I thought for sure a JIS screwdriver was some bulls$*& you were telling me and sure enough the damn things exist. THANKS. I would have used a regular phillips and had to replace something else.

Want to thank everyone for the JIS info! I have a set of extractor bits, didn't know that a row was JIS, now I do!

Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) screws very closely resemble Philips, but have a small dimple in one of the quadrants. Attempting to remove this screw with a Philips #1 could strip it, but the JIS locks up tight. The Philips is angled, the JIS is a straight cut.
