    Chinese airhead pushrod seals

    I installed these seals from capital cycle yesterday and they busted torquing the heads. These didn't have numbers stamped so I'm assuming they are Chinese. Removed them today and installed Bmw seals, they went in just fine.

    Ouch, Alan -

    I've heard about them splitting but never saw something like the way these chunked apart. Almost like they were hardened...sitting for a long time. Glad you're beyond this!!

    yeah Kurt, it was a surprise for sure, I have installed many BMW seals but these came with a bike I bought.
