If the crack is only a crack, not a missing chunk, it only needs to be 'degreased/cleaned, scruffed, re-cleaned, J-B Weld epoxied'!
Throw away the aftermarket magnetic drain plug with the Incomplete Final Thread which cracked it, when the last guy Forgot the thick aluminum crush gasket.
But like Tom suggest's, ya' might all ready own a less problematic bike! It just doesn't do dirt roads as well.
ps, I know that Tom S. really does want to see pics of the GL500!!
You can accidently slip him a damaged KLR pic.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
