I bought one off the site here this month and arrived in the last week.
I drilled a small hole in the top so that I could do the safety wire thing.
I have to admit that is one heck of a magnet there.
I laid the bolt in my bag alongside a pair of steel pliers.
When I picked up the bolt the pliers came with it.
so I guess it will do the job. :devil: :thumbsdn:

I'll be sure not to leave any tools laying loose in the pits in case you ride by.

I'd hate to turn around and find them gone... and stuck to your cases. :devil:

Wait until you change your oil and see all the stuff stuck to it. The minute you see the shrapnel, you will tell all your'e friends to get one. Sure the stuff won't make it through the filter but.......why test it to avoid paying 12 bucks?

This is another part that should come stock but......

More to the point, why run it through both oil pumps and let some of it settle in the corners of you oil tank to get it to the oil filter?
