You could just have it helicoiled

Or redrill it a littel bigger and rethread it

weld up the hole redrill and retap

Weld up the hole and leave it like that

Remove the sump and replace it





Not a big job.................. easy really

if the bike is up for the winter id replace the sump. you will be best to do an oil change so a new sump is piss all to worry bout.
