I have a situation and need some input. I just bought this bike and I'm in the process of fixing the mistakes of others. It has a badly stripped bolt on the bottom of the case behind the oil filter, and just below the net filter. There is even a small section of engine case missing that the bolt screws into. Any suggestions as to how to fix? I don't know yet how to attach pixs...where can I learn? I will send attachments as soon as I can.

As far as the broken area, is it leaking oil?

A talented welder may be able to weld it up, and then you can rethread the hole.

That screw is not supposed to be removed. The hole is there for blind machining process. If it is not leaking, leave it be. If you want, try to improve it cosmetically with file or dremel, but leave it in place...

Thanks for the info on this part. Would it be ok if I fill in the missing section with JB Weld then file and Dremel it?
