Anyone use these? Do you typically find stuff sticking to it on oil changes? Anyone know where I can find one for my 06' 450? I found Moose makes 03-05 but no 06 up.

Do you use one for both drain points?

No, I don't. Not a bad idea, but the thread is different, and I haven't bothered to look for one.

Where did you find one for both?

Did you get your Drill Bit?

I have the ZipTy plug in my 06, also ran one in the 00. Cheap insurance.

Only two reviews on TT and both bad. One obviously overtorqued and broke it but the second says that the magnet protrudes too far and may hit the crank. He has an 06' 450 and so do I.

Anyone have trouble with theirs?

That would be some trick. The crank is in a completely different compartment of the engine from the left/front drain plug, and the right/rear plug runs parallel to the crank, 8 inches behind it. :worthy:
