You could probably use the metallic tape for exhaust leaks (or similar) with some JB weld or some other sealant until you can get a replacement line.

You may be able to weld the line but I don't recommend it. If the weld fails you can wind up riding a bike on fire once the oil hits the exhaust pipes.
Give me a shout Thursday and I'll see if I have an old one laying around.

You guy's lack of confidence in JB Weld saddens me.
I fixed so much stuff with JB Weld.....After i fixed my oil pan it was the strongest part of my car.:icon_bigg :laughing6 :laughing6
Just ask Ramius. Our two cars took more abuse than any car should ever be subjected to. When he sold his car to Pick-a-Part they would only give him money cause the tires were in decent shape.

i dont lack confidence in jbweld, I lack confidence in his ability to clean an oil line well enough for the jb weld to do its job correctly. that being said, I personally would not trust the life of my motor via bad oil supply to a jb weld patch when I can simply buy another line and bolt it on. even if I had to collect coke bottles and aluminum cans to save up for the new line.
