1190 oil leak

Got back from a trip to Montana and discovered oil leaking from the rear valve cover. narrowed it down to the vent line that runs up to the airbox. it appeared the screw was loose so I tried to tighten and it just spins, the threads are stripped out of the cover?
talked to the dealer and they are 3+ weeks out not counting the 2 weeks of the Sturgis Rally that they won't be able to do anything but Rally work.. A little talking to the service manager and he said if I bring the cover in they can heli-coil it and get it back to me in a day or two.. not the best deal, but acceptable to me. fortunately the cover is fairly easily removed without taking anything off but the seat and loosening the brake lines.
dropped it off today and we'll see how soon they call.. I may ask them to warranty me a new one, but didn't want to wait for it at this point (it's only $63).
Still love this thing!! 1200 miles over the weekend (only a hundred or so off road) and an overall average of 48.3MPG running mostly in the 80-90mph range!!
