Yeah, that's another one of those "No second chance" things. Probable never happen to "Me" but if it does and the filter gets punctured all that oil lands in front of the rear tire. Put one of these on the first month I had the bike. Get a good sized rare earth magnet and stick it on your filter before installing the cover. Makes the whole filter a magnet.

Deepsea, would a speaker magnet do the trick?
Just realized {with the filter} cover it would stay in place fine, and is a pretty big magnet.

Ride safe, Ted

Any magnet will work as long as it fits inside. I recommended Rear Earth because the are strong and rugged.  Here's one that works well and only cost $4.00. Cheeper and works better than a magnetic oil plug.

I actually got the idea here on COG from another older thread some time back.

Every time I stop at a garage sale, or flea market, I see el cheapo car speakers, the kind in a plastic housing, the kind we used to use in our rides in the 70's... pretty much they can be had for like $2 and I've picked up a good collection, just for that purpose... you can split the doughnut shaped magnet with a chisel, and they stick on nicely to the oil filter... I also use them as "bolt/screw" holding trays, attached to a large pan bottom... and stuck on my tool cabinet, or vehical being worked on..
Belt n suspenders thing when used on an oil filter, is a couple wraps of duct tape, as a preventative loss measure...

By the way, the oil filter really only catches micro particulates, as there is a nylon screen on the housing where the oil pickup tube lives, inside the engine, which prevents chips and other debris, from being allowed into the oilpump... its a pretty large flat canister, with a snorkal tube, and a large surface area mesh screen... inside the oil pan.

P/N 49065-0014 on the parts diagrams... in the oil pan/pump section.

This is what I have stuck on my oil drain plug.

Safer than a magnetic drain plug, inho. I have seen good quality mag plugs break because of very thin wall thickness between the inserted magnet and the minor diameter of the thread (thread root). And the magnet is cheeper than a new plug. :great:
