i was just out looking at my 97 kx100 and it seems as if the right side engine case was cracked at sometime just below the kicker. i see a weld and it looks REALLY good, almost as if it was casted into the case and really professionaly done. has anyone had situations like this? if so do the welds hold up ok?

when my kickstarter stayed down on my 81 yz 465 and broke the entire casting off the engine i had a bud of mine weld it all back up and it held up fine... as long as the welder knows his a$$ from a hole in the ground it should be fine (my cases where even magnesium and still held up fine)
