ya, you're right. but we don't know if it smoked or how much it smoked on start-up.Hi Tony
If it was broken on assembly would it not have been smoking earlier than at 100 miles ?
I'm not questioning your opinion, just curious and would like to know more behind your thinking on this ?
We may never know how the ring got broken, it's not very improtant now, the guy want to ride so he needs another set of rings.
It is important not to do the same thing again.
