Do you guys just replace the crush washer now & then ?
Where did you buy them ?
Have any of you bought spare plugs/washers ?
If so were they OEM ?
Expensive ?
Are they all the same ?

Where is a great place to get the 3 plugs & crush washers ?
I need them for the V2k,Stratoliner,& Valkyrie.

I found these expensive ones: :eek: http://www.magneticdrainplug.com/motorcycle.html
At $15 bucks a pop are they worth it ?

I have always reused them. I have done 2 changes on the V2K so far and it has not started leaking yet. I guess I will get some new ones if they start leaking or I lose them. :D. I guess it would not hurt to have some of the gaskets on hand though.

I bought spares from BikeBandit.com. They were not too expensive. I had to replace the flanged plug because it was cracked. I reuse all the seals and plugs but I have a complete extra set just in case.

Size

Hmm... magnetic drain plugs. Kind of nifty.

(I'm sure that's why they are expensive there..stock ones not magnetic. Also remember the 2 oil plugs in the pan on these V2k's are not the same size. )
Not the same size ?
Same thread ? Longer/shorter ?
Cheaper ?
