Called some BMW services but they dont know what i want. In fact, if i am searching on a BMW part webshop it is listed as an "universal seal", no picture or details. Who knows what they will send? Not givin up this option, will look for more BMW databases.
Meanwhile, one guy in the car parts shops i called knew what i am searching for, although they had not one stocked but another one called Victor Reinz polyurethene which is for the same purpose. Non-hardening paste. The guy said this one is also used for cylinder liners/sleeves.

Other BMW parts search for 81229400339 gives Curil T as a result.

Yes, all BMW database search gives Curil T. The good part of it that this one is on stock in the next town car shop I will go with this one.

Now going to clean that mess. I need to finish the bike this week. I brought my kids to my parents and i have this week off. This is the reason of the great haste

100 pounds with shipping for 8 bolts? No way! I thought the whole set cost 8 pounds.

Ok, here is the deal. I was reading somewhere about TTY bolt reuse tolerances. Overstretching makes the bolts thinner. Checked my bolts again and found two which have uneven thickness. In particular. All other bolts having 8.90mm thickness throughout the thin part, but those two are going down to 8.82mm. Moreover, these bolts were behind cylinder 2 where cooling is not so good i think. The formula seems simple. Cooling error made this part to overheat and stretched these bolts, also resulting in coolant leak behind cylinder 2. Losing even more coolant made it worse. Now the question. What if the leaking radiator was first making coolant level low, possibly resulting in an air bubble behind cylinder 2 under the gasket? Is that possible?
Replacing these two bolts only seems to be a safe and affordable way to go.
Ok, another look at the manual. "If any of the threads or bolt head areas are damaged, replace the bolt(s)". Very confusing but as i understand this means bolt OR bolts.
Another comment. The threads and bolt heads are sound, only the yield part has a flaw. So, according the manual i could use even these again. Here is a picture of the mark at the thin part. Look for the belt around the bolt yield section.
Picture replaced.

Measured the bolt dimensions, it seems to be a common size with M10 x 1.5mm x 176mm. Triumph is not making their own head bolts?
A set of 10 same size bolts from Victor Rheinz would cost 20 pounds.
Note: Bikebandit is listing it for the Legend TT as a M10 x 1.25mm !!!
