Would a few welds around it help? Is it RVS or just plain carbon steel?
Or better to drill and tap? It is quite narrow, the narrow part is only 7 mm

I know some have put weld around the pin (would need some searching through forum) .
. and the majority drill (I believe), tap and fit an M6 screw with Loctite.

I think this is the easiest for me to arrange. Any special info I need for the welder? Is it hardened material, or stainless steel

Nothing special as far as I know

A good M5 screw with locktite is sufficient. Many, including me, have done this with no issues afterwards. Welding is unnecessary  IMO.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Mine was welded in Santiago Chile after it failed in Bolivia. I rode more than 2,500 miles with the broken pin. Picture of the repair can be seen here http://www.tiger800rtw.com/tigger-maintenance-repair/ (scroll down page a short way for photos). No problems since repair 5,500 miles ago.
