    I assume you don't want to keep the bar end? Maybe drill a hole next to the broken drill filled one to get access / remove the end? Try not to break the drill this time :-)

    Sorry, should have elaborated. It's actually about eighth of an inch inside the handlebar. Tried to change mirrors from mouse to speed triple type, and when drilling, took too big a bite. Now I'm fooked.

    Take it to a dealer and accuse them of doing it.

    Just get a rod and a hammer and tap the whole lot further into the bar
    New end on end

    There is a limit to the number of times you can do this
    Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

    Well, some success. Tried the rod and persuader(big arse gympie).
    Wouldn't budge.
    Drillbits are all blunt, and as I'm a tightarse, new ones are out of the question.
    But........ pauses for dramatic effect........
    While rooting around for a sharp drillbit found a burr( I think they're called).
    Proceeded to grind out the said broken drillbit as per dwillias advice in the first place.
    Took out more than I wanted to, but should be able to drill and tap out a thread in what's left.
    Now just have to make a bigger hole in end cap.
    Phew.
    Thanks heaps guys.
    Now, about sharpening drillbits.................
