On the striker, I don't know why I'm even asking but I've always wondered what the difference is. I've used black orings with no problems on it
whats so special?

I think it's just a tougher o-ring to put up with all that abuse.

I think some orings are just different colors to show what the oring is made out of (with the exclusion of DYE orings which im pretty sure they purposely dye theres to color code things on the engine). For instance shockers and luxes sometimes use a 17/70 green oring inside the can that takes longer to wear down.

The color coated black (color on the outside, black on the inside) o-rings are just used for assembly purposes to differentiate the o-ring within the production line. They are as durable and resistant as standard clear coated o-rings. Basically it's to make sure they don't put the wrong o-ring on, as it might be a special size etc.

The solid colored o-rings (the same color inside/outside) can mean its made out of a different material with different characteristics.

Green- A European standard that identifies Viton, so the ring would most likely be a metric size
Green-An American standard that identifies HNBR, for Freon service
Brown- An American standard that identifies Viton
Purple- An American standard that identifies Ethylene Propylene
Rust/Orange- Pretty much universal for Silicone
Blue- Pretty much universal for Fluorosilicone
Red-An American standard that identifies Neoprene
Gray-An American standard that identifies Buna-N
Clear- This indicates a very pure, probably medical grade, silicone
