Default Cracked engine.

I have a question about my 1998 CB 600 F.

A couple of weeks ago i got hit by a car while standing still. I leapt of my bike just in time to save myself from getting hit. However my bike got hit end toppled over hitting a curb with the left side of the bike. This resulted in a small crack behind the stator cover. The cover itsself was broken into 5 parts.

My Question is can i repair it using liquid metal? My father said that he can fix it but is this viable?

My Other option is to buy a CB 600 s with some damage to the front fork and fairing but what parts would fir my bike?

I vote to replace it also.
You might get away with a repair for a while, but it wont hold.
"Horsepower is like dick size; there is no such thing as "too much". Granted, you may never use all that you've got, but it sure feels good knowing that you've got it in your pocket, available to whip it out and use it anytime you want to. Or need to, even if just to win a bet ..."
