Some rubber stuff cracks or turns to gummy worms after prolonged exposure to sunlight.
I have mine now for the whole summer on the bike and the bike is parked in full Houston sun all day. From the 50 or so o rings there is one (1) that started cracking and they will be replaced shortly. The others are good and show no abnormal signs.
