    Hi all first post, I just wondered if anybody knows the thread length of the gear box oil drain plug , as I would like to replace it with a magnetic one to catch any nasties.
    Cheers

    The gearbox oil level check plug (fill to spill) , is the exact same as the drain plug. If you remove the fill to spill , measure it and you should not loose any oil …

    If you find something that works, please post. I've got a magnetic plug on the engine side but have never seen one for the tranny. I'll bet lots of us would go after one.

    Will do, shortest I can seem to find is 15 MM , tranny plug is only about 10 mm long , will let you know after the summer when I change the oil , also have gold magnetic plug for engine after oil pump issues , strainer ,non return value and new oil pump fitted by Norton, all seems fine now though.

    I have changed the engine oil sump plug for a gold magnetic one with a traditional hex head already , no issues.
