WR450 cracked case

I think there may already be a topic on this but i was unable to find it. I recently bought a 2004 WR450, after several attempts at kick starting (the engine started) I noticed the kick starter had not completely retracted. So to cut a long story short It appears that a section of the engine case has cracked out and it appears the kick start mechanism is broken A few questions

1. Is this common with older model WR's 

2. Is the cracked section repairable i.e. welding of the case

3. If not repairable is a new case required  

4. Does the whole motor need to be removed regardless


As I'm very novice any help would be great 

Pictures would be helpful. Are you sure that the case is cracked? Isn't it the cover?
