Default Stator help?

So I wrecked my bike and ordered all parts to replace what I thought needed to be replaced, as I was removing the Cracked stator/alternator cap..a piece fell with a huge bolt still screwed in. Looked further under and saw this:

I was thinking maybe a High Temperature Epoxy since that is the only place with the crack. I don't have the money for anything new, but I don't want to half *** it and be back in the garage fixing the same thing again.

Know any good welders? They charge by the hour, typically 100 an hour. That might be a 20 min job, so could be around 40 to repair it.

I don't but I will definitely look into it, $40 is a lot better than getting the whole thing new or even used.

Even with welding, that is going to be a really tough repair job. Getting the pieces all back together is one thing, but re-threading the screw housing is another.

Also, at the looks of the damage, you are looking at the stator itself, flywheel, cover and replacement screws. (which is probably already a whole lot)

Did you have full coverage insurance on the bike? or was the accident somebody's fault?

Well the broken piece sets perfectly fine, all I can hope it when taking the bolt out that it goes smoothly back in. Plus whatever pressure builds up, that it can still hold. As for the Stator and flywheel, I know that the stator still slides smoothly in and out and can spin freely (just checked to make sure the flywheel wasn't bent to the point it couldn't)

Am I okay to wash the stator? Small grass bits got around a little, cleared out everything else. Also, what do I need to apply to the stator? When taking it out I smeared off a lot of crap.
