These cracks normal wear?

Recommended Posts

So on my Honda 04  250 r 

Just looking for some insight here or if this has happened to anyone or is a casting flaw or stress crack or common sight, 

Found this hairline crack on the underside of the water pump not deep but looks like it's spreading      Any thoughts or comments?? How long can I run it ?should I look at getting new caseing?   Any thoughts or opinions ??

Looks like a crack from the mating surface inward. 

If it's not leaking, you will probably be fine to ride it until you do a tear down.

If it leaks, JB Weld it until you can get another case.
