my cylinder and crank was full of water as it had been sitting a number of years and i have been given mixed advice, one guy says my barrel will clean up and piston is fine and tbh they don't look to bad, other guy say's replace them and get a new crank as well, my question is, if i replace, should i go with OEM parts or is there better available? im only gonna do it once so some advice from you guys would be welcome

I would replace all bearings as a minimum. That includes the big end bearing... generally speaking easier to replace the crank. But I'd leave the top end if it looks ok. There will be opportunities to replace that later.

I'd agree with Ginch's comments, but it would also be worth freshening up the top end, judging by the pic, if nothing else. Good excuse to add a 210cc kit...
