Oh yes...anything can be fixed. I assume that's EPO so you can wick some regular CA in there...but you may also consider inserting some CF rods or other reinforcement in there if this is a high stress area.

Others may reccomend different glues.

The bottom line is that the answer is "yes" it can be fixed.

I didn't have any CA, i found another thread that recommended gorilla glue so i tried that on it, then used packaging tape over the crack, seems pretty sturdy now.
