While putting the bike up on the maintenance stand (for a clutch and brake fluid change) on a slight decline, I over estimated the force required and lifted the bike clean over the stand, which in turn whacked the oil return line into the sump and did the following damage....[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It can possibly be welded by a good man with a TIG kit

The two risk factors are
1) oil, carbon and dirt - getting it clean enough to weld may not be possible if polutants have soaked into the surface esp where the thread was cut
2) porosity and disolved gas in the casting - only really likely if it was die-cast

If you can bolt the flat mating surface to a solid plate to avoid warp and give it to a good welder?

So it depends on the price of a second hand one i suppose

Sad doesn't look good - maybe unicorn snot?
might be worth asking an automotive machine shop if they can repair - possibly cut all of the cracked metal out and weld in a new plug - then tap to match. or get a new sump........

At least you won't do that again!

I did a similar things some years back - someone parked me in and my only option was to ride off the kerb. Split the sump and dumped a heap of oil over my back tyre and road. Nothing a new sump wouldn't fix. I was going to get mine welded up but the guy who was capable of doing it right (and rode bikes) had heart problems and retired very quickly. He insisted (had it happened) that the sump must be bolted flat on a machined surface to ensure no warping. Still have it somewhere...
