Your bike already has one, Unless they put plastic ones on Muscles to match the body work of course.

I find it hard to believe the odd ways some people try to separate unsuspecting folks from their money.

Open the link guys, it says the harley magnets come apart and cause damage so buy their $40 snake oil of a magnet. I would say if you are that worried about it, put some epoxy on the factory magnet and save yourself the other $35 for beer

Don't think the stock magnet can fall out. For one reason it's stuck inside a steel drain plug. If it can't stick itself to that , wtf good is it ?

If you change your own oil, just look at the plug at the changes. You can see if it's coming out or not.

More than three decades of riding motorcycles and the one thing I have never seen is a drain plug magnet come loose.

I thought dimple things offer a stronger magnet ? .....like an earth magnet of some sort ?

I'm not worried about the stock magnet falling out at all.
