Yeah I did. I'm going to try that.

There is a lot of loctite holding it in there ...one of the reasons you stripped her. Bring a 1/2 drill bit for when all else fails

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!!!
So I drilled into the head of the screw and the end just slid off. I tried removing what was left of the screw with visegrips and still wouldn't budge. Heated it up a little and finally started to unscrew. I thought I was done with the problem just had to screw in the new bolt. Well there was so much loctite in there that the bolt wasn't catching. I went to the hardware store and bought a tap threader. Screwed it in once and cleaned up all the sh*t inside. After that it was smooth sailing. My bar end mirrors are done!!!! Next I will attempt to open up the engine and make it more powerful ( totally kidding)
