PostSubject: Oil Drain Plug   Sat May 05, 2012 5:12 pm


Does anyone make an aftermarket drain plug with a more
substantial bolt surface than the OEM ?

Change my oil today , and the thin side surface doesn't instill
confidence that it will hold up for the long term.
I did use a six point socket and a torque wrench

Back on my old CB550k , t went to an aftermarket old filter
cover bolt the because the Honda stock one was so flimsy.
Makes you wonder what the engineers were thinking of

I've fitted aftermarket magnetic oil drain plugs to a few bikes and scooters, and they're cheap, effective, and were good quality. I bought mine from Hein Gericke in the UK. There's plenty for sale on the Internet.

My Silver Wing is still under Honda Warranty, and it was Serviced last week. I won't know the size until I start changing the oil myself, and when the drain plug is out I'll measure the screw pitch. Then I'll get a magnetic drain plug. The popular sizes sold are M 12 x 1.5, M 14 x 1.25, and M 14 x 1.5, and I've recently recycled last years Hein Gericke, Polo, and Louis catalogues so you'll have to look online.

Thanks for the feedback.

I did check out the Hein Gerike UK website (They don't list one for
the US) but did not find any listing for drain plugs .

I guess I 'm the only one who seems to thinks it's a design flaw on Honda's part

I can always replace it with another $19 OEM one when it gets worn

It doesn't seem like Honda has bothered to fix the small niggling flaws
with the wing:The narrow mirrors. the seat light and latch, and the non functional windshield (over 60mph at least)
By the way, I just ordered a Givi windshield that I hope to have installed
next week

when i changed my oil i found the drain plug made of a very soft alloy and none of the metric sockets i had fit tightly. I found an old Triumph ring spanner(wrench) in Whitworth measurement fitted it perfectly,so i now use that. Just shows, you should never throw anything away. Smile

PostSubject: Spanner   Mon May 07, 2012 10:49 am

I have done the same and now use a six point, 24mm wrench (ring spanner) of roughly the same thickness as the drain plug's head height, for a more certain grip. Working from the right side of the Silver Wing, the wrench handle turns sufficiently to loosen the drain plug without contacting any other part of the bike.

A six-point, 24mm socket will do the job, but I am concerned about rounding the head with sockets, so my preference is to use the wrench after having used sockets on previous oil changes.

True indeed, Old Limey. It certainly doesn't help matters that I'm lying on the concrete garage floor and looking up at the bottom of the Silver Wing to place a tool in the proper position over the drain plug. The socket fits OK, but as you mentioned the wrench fits perfectly.
