Thanks, hey, not sure if this makes any difference, but I am crazy about oil and such in all my vehicles for a few decades now (gulp) I started with magnetic plugs on the vstar simply knowing it couldn't hurt pulling the metal out that the filter can't catch and just the fact that it shares the transmission oil with the engine, I was more then surprised how much it took out the first two times, , maybe much of it laying at the bottom of the pan.
But for 10 bucks its like a super extra filter that never has to be replaced, just wipe it down at each oil change. Anyway, they work and since then found out many sports cars have them and have ALWAYS been used in certain marine applications.
I was even more surprised to see that my new Road King came stock from the factory with 3 magnetic plugs, engine, trans and primary and they do not share oil.
Not as powerful as the aftermarket one I bought so I might get some for the Harley, you can buy them many places but I liked what I had from goldplug.com. You just plug in your bike info and they have the size.
The only reason I was sold on the gold plug is, darn they put some strong magnet on their plugs, I'm sure others do, I just don't know who, the OEM Harley ones I am sure do the job but I can't get over the strong magnet on the goldplug.
