I picked up a used flywheel that had cracks on the surface, but not near the bolt holes. I think those are just spots where the flywheel got really hot from friction. On mine, the cracks were shallow and there was a small amount of discoloration around the cracks. After a $35 resurface job, the flywheel looked good and works great. I'm not worried about the flywheel scattering. But, then again, I don't run my motor up to high rpm's, dump the clutch or hard shift it.
