Main bearing bolt?

You mean a main bolt.

You could try an Easy-out. Just make sure you use the largest one possible. You don't one of those things breaking.

It should come right out with an easy out. Now that it is broken, there should be no load on the threads to hold it in. BTW, if you broke it, you need to look into those things called torque specs.
