Default A Better Magnetic Drain Plug?

Most people know Vic's don't come with a magnetic drain plug but there are some available through various vendors. I'm not saying one is better than another but this one does show promise.

I report; you decide.

I think I'd give this one a try. I think I need one for the KP so I'll be ordering one soon.

I ordered a plug for my SUV and the 4 way super Black Hole magnets for the KP to attach to the filter. Looks like a decent product to me.

By the way; I found this info over on the Cyril Huze site. In the comments section the owner talks about the special high temp and specially shaped magnets they use.

FYI Gentlemen, our Super Black Hole 4 pack has a special shaped encapsulation (PAT. PENDING) that takes BOTH sides of the magnet and points both sides to the oil filter, doubly strong!
There is only a 2% of the magnetic field facing out. A simple magnet stuck on is a totally different story.
The encapsulation also prevents the VERY powerful magnets from breaking, (They are VERY fragile) as well.
We only use High Temperature Neodymium magnets, good for 300+F Store bought Neodymium magnets start loosing magnetism at 175F.
Thank you for allowing me to clarify.

Funny you bring this up. I found the same post on Cryil's forum and thought why didn't Vic put a magnet in our motors. Are they being cheap or they see no need for it.
But then they did put one in the Indian motor. Matter of fact the Indian motor has two drain plugs.
Guess two is better then one.
