Does my cylinder need to be repaired?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys - I got a pretty good deal on a used 98 RM125 but when I pulled the cylinder to inspect, I saw a crack. When I asked the seller about it, he said he's been riding with that crack for over a year with no issues. "He says" that his mechanic told him it was not worth getting the cylinder honed / plated given the cost. What are your thoughts? I am thinking it needs to be repaired but wanted some additional opinions from experienced riders and / or mechanics. 

thanks for your help!
