Just a little FYI

Anything on the engine case is going to be a pain as cast aluminum is very porous. Typically you have to bake the contaminants out prior to welding to get good results. You can do this in your oven depending on what the part is. You'll need to take precautions to maintain flatness on any joints. You want to ramp the heat up and down, 100 degrees per hour would be more than slow enough. 550 to 600 F for an hour should be sufficient. If you're oven won't reach those temperatures a good weld shop will have preheat ovens but you're going to pay a little extra for that process.

If you want to give more details in regards to what you want to weld I maybe willing to help you out.

Yeah, that's not on the engine case. So baking out the contaminants doesn't apply so much.

Is that a threaded hole you're trying to repair? If it is talk to the welder you choose about possibly using a threaded carbon rod as a weld backer, it's like welding on copper but easier to remove afterwards. If the welder knows what he's doing, the threads will be ok when the weld is done and all you'll have to do is dremel out the carbon and chase the threads with a tap. Pretty easy repair.

Gibson is a great welder that has done work on several stunt bikes that I know of.

Ive welded that before and just welded a whole new bracket on, considering you cant get to the other side I felt it would be stronger.

Haha I met the dude that threw the candy in your face last night by chance in the North Harris College parking lot. Forgot his name, but I gave him a number of my mechanic that works off of beltway 8 and hardy toll. Give him a call when you get the number.

I still can't believe what happened hehe. Take it easy bro!
