Is This Normal?

I recently changed my front tire and rear tire, along with lubing the near perfect condition spline. While taking off the rear tire I noticed this:

I don't know what the part is called and if it is normal for the cracks to be present. Everything else in the area looked fine. I have a feeling that my brake heating up too much might have caused this. If you need anymore information, don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you ahead of time for your help!

You do the Doohickey Mod on earlier Kawi KLR650s for the balancer shaft chain tensioner.

Thanks for asking the question Unibeck.

The previous answers in the affirmative will save me some worry when I pull mine apart in a few more miles to re-shoe the old girl, and discover the micro cracks.
