Cracked magnet holder in rotor // 1979 Yamaha DT175

Hello All,

I was working on replacing my crank seals and made myself a homemade tool to hold the rotor in place to pull the nut. Unfortunately I didn't notice that the studs I put in my homemade tool extended too far inward and were resting against the plastic pieces surrounding the magnets. A stupid mistake, and it cracked both sides simultaneously when I applied pressure to the nut.

How bad did I just mess up? Near as I can tell, the magnets are held in place by bolts/screws from the outside. Can I run this, or should I start looking for a new rotor?
