How about putting a magnet on the end of the dipstick? Just saw this one, replace the aluminium rod with a stainless steel one, and magnetize it.

I appreciate all the images- but- has anyone had these hoses back out? Any fall off?

Yes, I'm well aware of the safe/sorry ratio, and understand the idea of safety wiring.

But from a practical POV- anyone?

ZipTy sells a magnetic drain plug kit for the LC8.

The sump plug and filter housing plug would likely be sufficient to catch anything in lieu of the oil tank plug.

We try our best to offer the best prices we can. Don't forget about the ADV discount code.

Reason for increase last season:

We make our own custom fittings that are metric tool compatable (use your tools in the OEM tool kit)

All hose kits now all include a predrilled drain plug for safety wire if you choose.

Orange fittings for those that want it are also offered, only found here.

These features you won't find in any normal kit.

safe travels,
Craig

Thanks Craig. Nice touches. I'm sold.

I see KTMtwins offers a discount to ADV, but only for oders above $900.

Where would I use the coupon you mentioned and what might the code be? Google is failing me.

I was thinking about this why not put a magnet on a long thin spring attached to the drain bolt to run up in to the tank?

My local bearing house built me one for $17. Used it for 15,000+ miles with no problems.
