EDIT 2: Ended up finding a clutch perch on Gumtree for $20, but thanks for the advice!

EDIT: More photos added

The clutch lever metal is snapped on my Suzuki 1999 DR250R - I want to order a new set but desperately want to ride tomorrow - how could I fix this securely to make it safe for a short offroad ride for an absolute beginner? (ie no fancy stuff, just stop and go).

This is the situation at the moment, it moves when you ride it so is not safe.

That doesn't seem like the same stuff as JB Weld to me. JB Weld is a two part epoxy. I doubt either one will work. There is a lot of force when you pull the clutch lever. Is there enough room to wrap several loops of thin wire around that bolt. Thinner the better so you can get many loops criss-crossed. Stranded wire and separate one strand. You also might try PC-7 Epoxy. I've not personally used it but I was assured it is easier to use than JBWeld.

Here is a link to a post where PC7 was talked about.

True that hog.
With bailing wire (and duct tape) a person can fix anything. Or, for the high tech types... Aircraft Safety Wire and duct tape.
