When I put it in at OEM torque, it started to strip out a bit, so I took it out, and it was fine, so I put it back in until it felt right. It looks great though!

I bought this drain plug for my 2013 Yamaha Yz 125 and it does not fit a wast of $20.
I bought 2 of these one for my RMZ 450 and another for my KX450 first there is no way of knowing what color will come...
Second I have changed my own oil every ride and I tightend this one just with the same amout of tourque as the OEM and it snapped the head right off the screw and left the body inside for me to have to open the entire engine apart and go take it out from the inside magnet that the engine already has inside so the tip of the screw magnet thing they sell u is pointless!!
Then after that headache I put the other screw in the kx and super soft so it wont happen again and guess what this one leaks!!! I put the OEM one back on no leak! so its not the threads this product is overpriced for no reason better off buying an OEM plug!! wont recommend this to anyone
$20 is a lot for a drain plug, sure (especially when you aren't guaranteed what color you will get). However, I think this thing is almost necessary to have on a bike. Not only does it keep some of the metal in your sump from going into your engine, it's also a great indicator if you have something wrong. I only get extremely small particles (which is normal wear), but this plug can help you catch issues before they become critical, like if you started seeing shaving or small chunks on the plug.
I'm not crazy about having a red bolt on my WR250F, but on most other bikes you won't be able to see the plug anyway.
I plan to buy one of these for every bike that I ever own.
Like how metal shaving stick to plug but was disappointed when I ordered it cause o thought I be blue like the pic but it just plain gray
Fit was very good, seems to work as it should. Feel like it is a little pricey otherwise would have rated higher. Also, you may not get the color in the photo. Blue plug shown received a red plug.
Good looking piece, but I received a plain metallic color one, not the blue one pictured. Still good thing to have a magnetic in the "oil pan"
Works as it should, durable. TM products are great for preventative measures.
This is a pretty sweet product! Great deal!
fit perfect on my 2011 yz 250 very light with a strong magnet for added protection on your expensive dirtbike
every time i change my oil this plug is full of metal shavings definitely works. i gave it a 4 because i didnt get to chose color but u cant see it.
Replaced the OE non-magnetic drain plug in my 2003 Wr 450 Yamaha. Plug looks well made and has a very strong magnet that has a large surface area to collect metal trash in the oil, its also priced less than competitive alloy magnetic plugs.
Plug is shown in blue and the one I received was red. I could care less but just a heads up. Great item that adds an ounce of prevention.
Works good and looks good too
Helped me find loose metal . while breaking in the motor.
This piece of junk broke off in my motor after the 3rd oil change! I wasnt even CLOSE to the torque spec when it snapped. Ruined my day (cant ride) and now I have a MAJOR project on my hands. TM Designworks better do something to help me out. I'll follow up....
What else is there to say? The plug I had on my KX250 when I bought it was a hardware store cast iron bolt. This should help save some wear and tear.
The product works as described. Like other reviewers, I had my blue plug show up red. It will fit a honda or yamaha, it works, and is hidden by a skid plate, but it still isn't the color I ordered.
Catches a lot of clutch and metal shavings. Good investment to protect your trans.
Note: Colors may vary from blue, red, or black on the Magnetic Drain Plug due to TM Designworks'' process of anodizing to provide the best look and protection possible
