6 o clock AM high side

well on this day was my last motorcycle class. just so happened i was late and found out yesturday my girl was preggo. yeah should of not been riding today but i did cause well it blow stuff off my mind. well pulled out in a u know how. RUSH like a idiot out the drive way fog built up in my helmet shield and lost sight. the rear wheel drifted right caught the edge of the road and woop woop left right left drift again hard right and caught again thus throwing me. its been a crappy morning but the damage to the bike is bad sorta. the crankcase bolts are shaved down and only one bolt put a crack across the housing of the hole it goes in. im 23yr and dont have money to buy a new engine side how can i fix this. i was thinking fill the hole back in and the cracks and re tap it to specifications to the same bolt size. or just jb weld it. any opinions im stressing bad!

If its just the cover and not the case, pay shipping both ways I can weld it up for you for free. Would be cheaper than buying a used one if you can wait for it.

fix it right mechanically to ride it again. if not dont ride it. i high sided a year ago. i will never forget it till i die. the disorientation, the realization what is happening, the hit to the ground, the sound of metal and plastic hitting concrete at the same time, the fear that your bike will flip and land on you, your own bike landing on you, the animalistic kicking when the bike lands on your legs, the frantic scrambling to gain your bearings and escape oncoming traffic. and after reliving that every time i ride, i still choose to ride. thats not hard, thats stupid. i survived something i should have died from or been seriously injured from. sounds like you have aswell. i dont have kids or anyone who depends on me. you do. rethink what you do before you do it. thats all im saying.
