Cracked crank case

I have a crank case that has a hair line crack in it near one of the bolts. This case is from an 1986 Yam XT 600. The case has magnesium in it so welding is not an option. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this? It is leaking oil all over the place.

Motowerks can fix cracked engine cases. Not sure If I'd trust jb weld or not. (203)635-0264 Not sure if the number is still the same or not. You'll have to find out

My tt600 did the same thing. They can be welded by professianls, but you may have to remove the case. Mine was caused by the poor ol girl vibrating the Jug bolts loose.
