Ducking for cover!
I got the idea from another forum. Anyone tried it to filter out the metal particulate?
:them: This sounds like something that was to be done to Old motors, you remember the HD'S that needed to be Tore Down every 10k miles, if my bike is letting that much metal go there is something wrong. I think you Geek boys miss the old days of Push rods and Carbs so you could Fiddle your little hearts away with your friends on the weekends in your driveways drinking beer and being proud that you can use a wrench, Me I want the focking thing to work with little to no interferance from me.Pondo said:Isn't that what the FILTER does? FILTER the crap out of the oil?
Bigger pieces get stuck to the drain plug magnet anyways.

The metal particles that DO get through a decent oil filter are going to be way too small to be pulled out of the oil stream by a magnetic field.
The best prevention is to use decent quality oil and filter, and change them on a regular basis.
