small hole in oil pan

long story short i was run off the road and downed my bike. the only major damage was a hole in my oil pan about a half an inch long and about a quarter inch wide. need to see if there is an inexpensive fix untill i can afford a new oil pan. JB weld, ect. any thoughts?

All years should fit. Any temporary fix could end up very costly and painful if the bodge fails and drops oil...

At minimum take the pan off and find a welder experienced with welding ali

The oil pan is the same for all years.

A muffler shop can weld it up for cheap. I wouldn't trust any other fixes.
