Please note that although the gaskets are strong under compression, you should never use a sharp tool like a screwdriver to install them. This may tear the silicone.
The piston V seals for the levers are now blue, they are now a different design to the red seals which will only be used on the Robot from now on. The new blue seals are a bit larger than the red seals.
As with any silicone seal, you should only use food safe silicone grease to lubricate them, do not slather it on, a sheen is sufficient. Dow 111 is a good choice.
Each piston requires 3 V seals. The V seals are must softer and easier to install than the rubber ones.
