it is called an extractor. You also need a drill and bits.

Or you might be able to get away with jb welding another bolt/nut on top.

Just a little fairing panel, get a small flathead screwdriver, jam it in to the stripped hole and twist, easy peasy....

If that doesnt work, get a dremmel with a small cutting disk and slice a nice cut in to whats left of the head, then use a flathead and its a done deal.

I am really surprised you even posted this, you sure its just a fairing panel?

Don't mess with the JB weld method. It takes too long. Take a dremel and cut a slot in the screw and take it out with a screwdriver.

Are you talking about the head of the bolt or the thread?

Which bolt is it? If it is the single one between the three bolts on the front of the side fairing and the large 1/4 turn bolt, it is threaded into a rubber grommet with a threaded insert. When I had to remove my fairings, both grommets had rotated out of the holes they were in and it seems like the bolt is stripped.

I have a similar problem, i used to much thread lock on my fairings and it led to the whole threaded gromet turning in place so i just keep turning and turning with out loosening. any tips on that? im thinking drilling it out. gotta get all new hardware too. lame! like $40 from the dealer for enough for the fairings, lame... and i used to much thread lock so it got on my fairings just a smudge and ate at the plastic just a hair round the bolt. oh well, i know better next time.
