Question drilled wrong cap

ok so i wanted to drill the a/f caps out. i saw the photos but i didnt work on the bike for a few days after that and my memory must have been fuzzy because i driled the wrong hole. i realized this after gas began dripping out i have put some jb weld on and im waiting for it to cure (weather is gonna be crappy for a few days anyway) my question is will the jbwld hold and is there a better solution?

Ooops. Sorry, man. That sucks. What exactly did you drill? A pic would be helpful here.

no its right above it... i dont know what it is.. it was plugged with some sort of ...brass??.. ball (gold in color when drilling) i assume it is some sort of deleted "accesory" line for use in another set up on another machine (my best assumption) it dosen't seem to have any function on our bikes (except to confuse i nitwit like my self )
