  • 17mm oil drain plug and crush washer

    Where is the best place to buy a spare or two and some extra washers?

    I got mine at Autozone.

      Any parts store. The thread size just has to match. My front one is a mag plug that’s 14mm.

      I’ve tried the blue plastic washers but it was tough getting them to seal. I switched to a washer with a rubber seal. I think there was 6 in the pack.

      I don’t bother with the front plug for regular changes. Just drain what I can from the rear and top it off. I do that every 2-3k miles or so. And a new filter every other oil change. Only time I pull the front plug is when I do a Seafoam oil treatment, which is every other year. I replace the washer then.

      Tykes a few years ago i changed my clutch spring to the Barnett plate conversion. I did this work in the early spring before I started my bike since the oil change in the fall before storage. My findings were oil tank had near exactly half of what engine had for oil. Both containers were near identical. Just wondering how much oil you are draining before top up? JC

        I think you're right. When I drain the tank it's enough to fill two empty quart jugs. A bit more when I change the filter too. Basically I change half the oil but twice as often. End result is the same with how often the oil gets cycled overall, and I don't need to fuck with the front plug so much. It was Duke's suggestion at one of the NW Starfest rides. Works for me.

        I don't mind doing a full oil change. But I have to jack it up, drain twice, or use two drain pans, etc. It's just so much quicker to drain the tank and then top off.

          I never use a jack to change my oil. I just put the kickstand on a 2x4. If I need more room, I roll the bike up on 2x4s and put a 4x4 under the kickstand.
