noticed my kevlar bands which have approx 1000 miles on them are a little fraied on ends I believe when installed they were sealed nothing is showing up in filter may be over reacting. I have new bands and the ends are somewhat sealed I may be waisting my time replacing if this is how it is. just looking for a little feedback
If you are talking about what comes on the band end as a seal, that is next to nothing.
They have to be sealed right, or they will fray.
This topic does come up on occasion.
