I snapped the right side upper shock bolt. It looks like this is fixed bolt on the frame with a nut securing the shock. What the heck do I do now?

Seems I have seen this discussed before. Cut off the stud and drill out to facilitate a bolt-thru application.

What he said, had to do it on my 1100, still going strong.

Thanks. I drilled out the threaded bolt that comes out of the cylinder which the shock slides on too. Now I feel like my bit is hitting frame and going nowhere. Will I be able to drill through. I'm assuming that I dont cut off that cylinder which the shock slides on.

It should be hollow behind where the stud comes out from. Its a welded on stud that comes off the upper side of the frame. With the shock off, you should be able to fill behind the area. I used a stainless grade 8 bolt when replaced.
