Motobins $2000 O Ring

Recently bought a $2000 O ring from Motobins. It appears and feels to be a common standard black O ring which presumably will be the normal 70 Shore which I think is too hard.

A hard O ring might be fine if the canister is dead parallel with the engine case but they are not are they. Which might be why the proper original white O rings are softer.

Anyone have experience good or bad with the Motobins supplied $2000 O rings or with a common hardware store O ring which is what they seem to be.

In my limited airhead history (half a dozen filter changes?) I have used Motobins little black number without problem.

Thanks,

I will see how it goes. Maybe they soften a little at working temperature.
