Dimple magnetic drain plugs
I run Dimple magnetic drain plugs in my 2018 Yamaha Star Venture, I like the Dimple drain plugs because they are a very high quality piece and the magnets they use are very powerful.
My old Victory Cross Country Tour I bought a magnetic drain plug from a place called Witch Doctors but I ended up replacing it with a drain plug from Dimple.
The Witch Doctor drain plug the magnet was very weak and would not even hold up a normal size flat blade screw driver, the Dimple drain plug on the other hand would hold up a 1 1/4 Snap On wrench, the Witch Doctor magnetic drain plug would not even start to lift the wrench.
I have found the 113 C.I./1854 cc Yamaha V-Twin to be a very clean engine not producing a lot of small metal particles as evidenced by the Blackstone lab reports on the used oil samples I had done.
Those of you interested in a magnetic drain plug I recommend the Dimple magnetic drain plugs.
