Also you can take it to a machine shop they get it out.I'd also think of having it drlled and tapped for car size bleeder for those small ones are famous for breaking
in 1989 I broke the rear bleeder off my friend Artie Bush pulled the broken bleeder out with a file handle in place of an ez out , I went down to the auto parts store and matched a bleeder screw no tapping needed. I would try to match one or go to a Harley dealer and get one . Nikki
