Rear Skid plate and bolt

With only two rides and 124 miles the rear skid plate has failed. One of the bolts has sheared off bending the plastic and leaving the treads of a bolt in the frame fitting. I'm tempted to call the dearer about warranty. If they won't do anything I guess I'll need to drill out the insert and buy a new insert, bolt and possibly skid plate. $30 and my time I could have been riding and working on other things. What do you think would be the best fix? I'm thinking about aftermarket. Those should last longer compared to fixing stock every ride.
