i've done it successfully, just make sure you do good prep work and it should last for quite a while.

should be fine as long as you drain/clean the pan before applying it

proper prep is your friend, if you can drain the oil, prop the bike in a position where residual will run in the good corner or area of the pan and prep prep prep and more prep on the area, scuff with sand paper, clean with acetone and alcohol a bunch and yes, jb weld kicks major if you give it a good clean surface to adhere too.

i fixed my mercedes oil pan after walmart knocked a hole in it ..sumbitches put silcone on the hole , I saw em come in an get it off the shelf.. wondered why it took so long to change my oil and filter.. got home and a stream of oil behind me.. took it back and it was my word against theirs. so i finished draining the oil.. sand papered the hole.. then wiped it good with alcohol and put very thin layers on at a time and let them dry.. worked for years.. ..
