If the pan is like a car all you will have to do is is exactly like you said remove the bolts and add a new gasket. There shouldnt be anything attached to the pan. It is probably going to be a whopper of a price, you could always check for a used one online through a junkyard or try to buy one new aftermarket.
why were you changing the oil with only 120 miles?

well im not sure how it happened ... i used the right size socket and i used a torque wrench with the right setting to take off the oil drain bolt... but it happened. the oil pan is cracked where the drain bolt goes in.... i know the dealer will rape me to put a new one on... the bike only has 120 miles on it... is changing the oil pan as simple as taking out the 14 bolts and swapping the pan and gasket for a new one or is there parts connected to it and everything..... basicly is it hard and how long will it take?
also is the dealer gonna be the best place to get the oil pan?

thanks for any help in advance

Maybe you can argue that it should be under warranty? Also, isn't a torque wrench only for tightening, not loosening? (u may wanna recalibrate ur torque wrench)
