How have you been doing? IMO - You shoulda bought a Zip Ty drain plug. Much better magnet and perfect fit. When are we goin riding again? We gonna have to meet 1/2 way or somethin. If not we'll have to wait to TT Ride #2 in May.
Take care T.0.P.

But I agree with Fryboy, return the moose and get the Zip Ty plug, thing has a crazy strong magnet on it......

They sell the same part for 250 smoker and 426, the latter needs to use the stock washer, not the one supplied by Moose.
Hope this helps.

When I bought my 99 I also bought a Moose plug and was expierencing the same problem. Thought it was a faulty plug so I took it back and exchanged it. Same problem with the next Moose plug.
Fast forward 3 years. Finally bought a Zip Ty plug and it threads right in and the magnet is da' bomb!
(I'm not sure why Moose is making plugs with the wrong size threads - but they are)

Thanks for the heads up.

Who has the Zip Ty Plug? Any recommended companies?
I just ordered mine straight for the man himself. Ty Davis.

When i ordered mine I also got a couple of my buds in on it and ordered 3 at once. Saved on shipping.

How is the strength holding up over time? The only thing I've seen happen is that as the strength of the magnet increases, so does it's ability to resist demagnetization at temperature.
These magnets are incredibly strong. I used to design magnetic separators using them and we had a guy lose a finger between 2 magnetic rolls.
