piston fracture

I've discovered a tiny little crack about a couple millimeters long right at the bottom of the piston. Do I need to repair this or can this be ignored ?

RE: piston fracture

This is your NEW piston?

If you did nothing wrong they might give you a new one.

I'm sorry.. but you need to replace it.. small cracks become big cracks.. big cracks turn 1 piece into 2 pieces.. extra piece bounces around inside 7000 RPM motor and gets jammed in bad spot causing more parts to be destroyed.
