Cylinder Cover nut thread broken - Advise is needed (Photo included)
Today, after getting done with the valve clearance adjustment, I made a terrible mistake and tried to install the cover without using a torque wrench. The result? One of the three nut threads inside got broken. Any idea how to fix it? Also, the two others are fine and tight, would there be any problem if I drive the bike without the third bolt in place? Does the cover have any stress whatsoever?
Any comments are welcome. The photo, although not originally from my bike, shows what exactly has been broken.
Thanks in advance.

Reason: A mistake on tittle. It is the Cylinde Cover, not the cylinder itself.
