Hello welcome 馃憤 there is a shop called jaws here in the uk that specialises in cbr1100, they have goodridge hel oil cooler lines I think there 拢140 for the pair, you also need 4 new orings to go with them.
Good luck with you broken bolts, I take it, it's the 4 that are on the engine block that broke?.
I know it's a bit late now but, when you do them next time run the bike so it gets good and hot like when the fan kicks in, then undo them, I got all my 4 out in one piece.

The replacements are braided end to end, but standard ANC fittings. They give you adapters that convert the outlet on the block to ANC; no need to ever have to touch the bolts again.

I would try the weld it first to see if I can get the bolts out, just remember to take the battery and ecm off before you start, and try and keep the welder earth clamp as close as you can to the bolts your trying to weld out, but what ever you do, keep calm lol take your time, if you have to drill them unless you know what your doing, take it to a professional.

Unfortunately - most people will want the engine out before they will have a go at trying to drill out ( spark erode out ) broken bolts.
There is not much meat around the bolt area and if not careful - you will go through the block and dump swarf in to the sump.

For this bolt - I would get someone to weld a nut on to what is left of the bolt.
The heat of welding may free off the bolt and the nut will allow you to use a wrench / socket on it.
An extra to Deano's suggestion is to weld a washer to the bit of the exposed threads, then weld a nut to the washer.
Its easier to get a good weld with the washer first than trying to get a weld down the inside of a small nut.
I have used this method many times and as stated, the heat in the bolt may help to loosen the threads.
