You don't need a new sump if it's just the thread where the drain bolt goes in - drain the oil, get the sump off, take it to a bike workshop (maybe a car workshop but I don't know about that) and get them to helicoil it.

By the way. a cat litter tray makes an excellent oil drian pan and costs a fraction of the ones that are sold for the purpose!
