oil filter magnet

http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/...ilter_magnets/

what u guys think?it seems like a good idea, im just scared it wont fit right and cause a small gap between the rubber ring on the filter and where the oil goes through the motor. leaving unfiltered oil going in. then again im always scared the filter is not snug againt the motor good enough, maybe it will make it stay in place better. thoughts?

I'm unsure as to how effective it would be in a 700xx engine. I'm sure the valves and crank are steel but I would imagine the majority is aluminum.

would it hurt it in anyway though? im thinking it might make the filter stay on a little better if nothing else. i dont like the spring behined it, just seems like its not gng to stay or its not snug. i check it 3 or 4 times to make sure before put it back togather. im really paranoid bout that stuff though.

Filter magnets are a great idea. Use them on everything!

Just my opinion,
I have changed the oil in my 700XX quite a few times and always find it difficult to "break" the bolts loose. With just a simple tightening when installing a new filter the dissimilar metals tend to create a wonderful seal so I am not at all concerned about the screws loosing up. I no longer use a torque wrench but a 1/4 " drive socket tightened in an crisscross pattern slightly past snug. Again, just my opinion.

i guess i didnt word this right looking back at it. Its not that im scared the bolts would come out or anything, but jus that its kind hard holding that spring and matching the rubber ring up then holding it all in place while u screw the cap back on. Im always scared i didnt get that rubber piece on the filter lined up right. Plus if it stops any metel thats good to. sry for my full page reply. If it fits ggo i will probably get it
