Ive just read a very old post about the use of magnetic sump plugs. May I offer a word of warning, Perhaps there are certain varieties that are better but in my experience they are far too weak. I know a couple of guys who managed to sheer them while installing. I did the same helping a friend service his bike. I was just using a short open ended spanner to wind it in up to the washer and it sheered. The amount of metal left when the centres are drilled to insert the magnet was about 1mm!! I was very lucky in that I was eventually able to use a punch and hammer to tease what was effectively a helicoil of thin brass out. Utter s**t!!
