I started making my own magnetic plugs useing small (1/4 in) round magnets and a little JB Weld. The magnets are pretty strong and would probably stay in place with out the JB Weld but better safe than sorry. I bought a batch of 10 magnets off of Ebay for about $10 shipped and I have put one on all my bikes, 4wheelers, lawnmower, log splitter, snow blower and the kids go kart. You just have to be sure that you have the room up inside the engine for the additional 1/8 in or so. Hav'nt found one even close yet. It is amazing how much crap ends up on that little magnet. I am going to get some more magnets and put them on the drain plugs in my trucks transmission and transfer case and the diferential fill plugs as well.
