You'll have to use some type of epoxy or JB weld and tap it out.

I did the JB weld when one of those went south on me (stripped threads)...here's what I did.

Use JB weld...once it starts to set take the screw and screw it in. Prior to doing so, take your wife's cooking "Pam" spray and apply liberally to the screw. This will help keep the epoxy from sticking to the screw. Let the epoxy dry and screw out the screw...your done...worked for me with no issues what so ever. Have taken off outer fairing several times once repaired...sorry I have no pics.

Good luck

^^^^^^^^^same here, do it above 70 degrees and let set for good 12 hrs, plus thin out the jb with denatured alcohol, or use rubber cover repair, I'll find some pic's

they somewhere, but those or pieces of the inner fairing repaired with the flexible, dremeled down before paint, can't tell. It will help if use a soldering iron to kinda melt/weld to hold first, align prefectly, you can do it. Also use the screw to thread up&down slightly after several hours of drying to make sure it will hold tork. Don't even try superglue. prep up the surrounding area (scotch bite or dremel) alcohol wipe and thin out the jb, works everytime. On your pic, you are gonna havta build the repair up

Those are great suggestions and ill have to give that a try but it looks like (in the posted pics) that there's actually pieces of it missing. Can the J-B weld still be used

I don't personally use the JB weld. I use the products from Fusor. They have numerous 2 part epoxies for ABS, Fiberglass, & steel. They are expensive but we'll worth it. You can mold and shape it also.

Yes...the JB Well can be shaped while its hardening or applied building up the area as it sets.
