For me personally, I'll never feel comfortable about riding a bike with cracked RD jockey wheels of any kind lest it asplodes and possibly jam up the chain in the RD and cause the RD to get wrenched or bent up into the spokes.......guys who ride such cracked jockey wheels might call me paranoid, but at least I don't have it in the back of my mind when i ride.
BTW, I also noticed that the cracked jockey wheel on my NR RD has other small cracks forming at other parts of the wheels in addition to the one big split that's already on them, so it's really a progressive thing that happens with the Campy Jockey wheels and not just one big split.
