it's one of the bolts that hold the cases together. Way too deep to use a thread insert.

Not but 1 way, it got overtightened.

You may be able to screw a 1/4 - 20 bolt in the hole. Yes, its a cross thread, but, with a fiber washer behind it, it might stop the oil.
I think I would use a grade 8 bolt if I tried it. Grade 8s are strong, and less likely to break.

Sence thats on the left side (kick stand side) of the bike, that makes it kinda easy. That bottom section of frame comes out (unbolts). You must put it on the center stand to remove it, because the side kick stand is attached to the section of frame that you will be removing.

It doesn’t look like the source of your leak. (Maybe leaks?) It looks as though it is coming from the front cover area? There are a few places which can leak oil there.
