Rubber crush washers
So I was doing an oil change on the wife's bike today and figured I should probably see if I could get a new crush washer for the drain plug.
The last time I bought a couple for my DRZ they seemed kind of expensive (like $7 each) and my DRZ needs 2.
So I went over to B & J auto where I got the amsoil and k&n filter and asked if they had crush washer to fit this drain bolt from her R1 and he says "well I don't have one of those but I have something better" and gives me this metal washer with a rubber liner.
Looks like this.
Best part is I think he only charged me about $2
Anyone used these?
Those are quite nice because instead of crushing a copper washer and possibly under/over tightening it, with these you tighten it up until it bottoms out and make it snug like a bolt, and the rubber seal does its job in sealing the pan.
nice. I bet they are reusable a few times too. I will picking them up after my next oil change. thanks for the post!
edit:I might upgrade my drain plugs to these guys http://www.oildrainvalve.net/ you will never have to buy another crush washer again. plus no wrenches. my drz400 never goes off road so it won't break. $50 bucks for 2 though, so kinda pricey. but the convenience is damn nice.

just having fun
i can't believe you pay that much!!!! those things are no more than $1.50 or so each. even that seems like a lot but i like them better than the flat, non-crashable ones.
