Default I'm done ..rear spark plug fillers

Looking at the bike today and noticed the front filler that I just replaced went missing again so I am done with them. So I got 2 rear fillers for sale which I will sell for $15 + shipping each. This is NOT a set but both are the rear fillers.

Do they just not attach well or what? I have no experience with them; just wondering...

I can see right off why you were losing them. Either they are cheap rip-offs and/or you did not have them installed correctly and securely. Compare my photo with yours.

I have to wonder if it is something just with my bike as I had them on my 04 and never a problem. They wedge into the opening and have a set screw which applies pressure to a disc pushing the filler upward to hold it in place. The first one I lost was installed by the previous owner and I figured he didn't have it tight enough. I even applied some thread locker to the second one. I would blame the freakin road I live on that is loaded with bumps and gaps that run the width of the road every 30 ft. 2nd gear and going as slow as possible still rattles the bike.

I lost mine too after a week. The were Kuryakyn and were on there tight. Bought a new set from Victory Things and hopefully these stay on.

Sorry for your runaway parts.

I bought some of these over winter and forgot to install them. Hopefully mine don't run off too. I don't see any way to add extra security to them other than a rubber band around filler and plug boot.

My bike seems like the suspension is a lot stiffer than my 04 was. I got to wonder if this has something to do with it.
I was thinking if a small piece of rubber under the disc, or maybe an o-ring would help at all.
You possibly got a good idea there. Maybe put a screw on the back of the filler to attach an insulated wire looped around the plug wire. Or maybe a zip tie?? Wish I thought of this myself after losing the first one. I will never know unless I some how find one for next to nothing.

I fiddled around with one of the rear fillers today just for the heck of it. I took a length of 16 gauge wire wrapped it under the first full fin and twisted it tight at the back of the filler. Then went around the boot of the plug wire making a loop. I installed it just to make sure it would sit fully in place,it did with no problem. The black wire is totally unnoticeable. If I ever find a front filler I would definitely use this.

Which one did you lose, or was it both? Yea, a lot of stuff is made in China no matter who's name is on it or what you pay. I would not be surprised that they all are made there.

I took mine out of package but not mounted on bike yet. Might put on before multi state trip.
They look like bottom foot is rubber I don't see that letting go.
I have another thought too using 3M tape on bottom. That holds great and can be peeled off and replaced during maintenance.
