Default Kuryakyn Chrome primary cover install=Major problem...HELP!!!

Okay, so I got some overdue birthday and Father's Day cash and picked me up some Kuryakyn bling for my XC motor. Chrome base eventually went on fine after dropping a screw into the front and having to remove side cowl and left floorboard to finally get the screw. After that, install was ok and it looks great. Next, it was time to put the Chrome Primary cover on, seems simple enough right?, removed the screws as per directions, put the cover in place, re-inserted screws with supplied washers and tightened as per instructions. Well, this is where everything went wrong. The first tab towards the front of the cover snapped, and an even bigger problem, the middle screw actually snapped leaving me one bolt shy on my primary cover. Now I have a MAJOR problem with one of my primary cover bolts snapped off. I tried real quick to see if I could use a "bolt out" but it wasn't working so I abandoned that idea for now. Cleaned everything up, took the bike for a ride and nothing seems to be leaking, but I do know this is NOT GOOD !, anyone ever snap a primary bolt?, any advice on best fix?, how difficult is it to remove the cover and try again with a bolt out once I can get better access to the snapped item?.......HELP !!!

most of your photos are too big to make out what your showing.
the bolt that broke was maybe to long and bottomed out and you were to strong

Bolt not too long, it's OEM and came out of there. Too strong?, probably, but I was trying to be accurate using a torque wrench however I didn't read "in/pounds" and had it set way too high. Should have had my glasses on. Anyway, I can't undo it, I just need to fix it.

There are a lot of ways removing a bolt , especially coz your one is not "stuck" by rust just torqued.... if you would remove the primary again, is the broken bolt sticking outside the tread hole or not ?? Then it should be easy to take out ... if it snapped off under the thread hole, then there are many options to choose from ... left turning drill / bolt extractor / etc etc

Will go ahead and remove tranny cover but would really appreciate some "how-to"s on that from folks who have done so. I'm thinking of trying a left-hand bit either by itself or in conjunction with an easy out without removing cover? anyone think that might be possible?

I bought a set of those screw out or something like that. It has a left hand drill on one end and a screw extractor looking thing on the to opposite end. They work decent.

Is that pretty much straight forward? that and exactly how difficult is the resistance of the magnet coming off and going back on?
