JB weld, or take it to a machine shop and have them fill in the hole...

tape and dye (sp) kit, you drill a hold in the screw then you put in a reverse threaded bold when the bolt gets tight on the broken one it will start unscrewing the broken bolt.. make sense to you?

andy at metric motorcycles is a real good aluminum welder. www.metricmotorcycles.com

he's central and can repair it if it needs to be repaired.

A few of them









The picture is not real clear but it doesn't look like it would need to be repaired looks like it is actually below the gasket surface, a new cover and gasket should have you back on the road. If it needs to be repaired I have a tig setup and can fix it right up but I don't think it needs it looking at the picture.
