I wouldn't use JB weld... I bet if you took it to a welder, they could TIG weld it up fine.

Good idea! I think I'll take it over to some local guys http://www.weldandfab.com/ Best Regards Rob Blessin

Watched a few youtube videos this weekend. Another repair field that might be able to handle this would be wheel rebuilders. They do weld magnesium and have the material experience to possibly deal with this.

Magnesium is a PITA to weld, but any good welder with a TIG should be able to do it in 5 minutes.

Does any know if the magnesium used has a specific name or product name that define it ?

I don't know the exact alloy, but it's a magnesium alloy, similar to that used on many motorcycles.
