Have any of you ever made your own wire bonding jumper to replace a lost or missing strap to bond two neutral bars together. Do I use 250.102(C)(1). or 250.122? I would assume 250.122 being that it’s on the load side of OCPD.

Good question. IMO neither of those table would be applicable. For starters it would need to be large enough to carry the neutral current of all of the conductors landed on the separate section of bus.

Might be a UL issue with it, but as infinity said, I think if you sized it the same size as your service entrance neutral, you should be ok.
