Looks like that's a single piece, so I'd be tempted to replace it with a new one rather than trying to bodge it.

Tez, I had a similar problem with the carb heater oil feed on my 900SS and the nice people at Forza Italia Silverstone were able to get one made up for me in less than 24 hours. Might be of use, depending on where you're located.

Nice one - good idea to go twin lines!
