No luck on finding the magnetic-plug link.
Sorry, but I'm sure you'll easily find one via a search.

There's always a certain amount of crappola on it when removed which must be ferrous and can't be engine-friendly.

Like I said, It's cheap insurance.

That's the link.

I recall that it was a good value, too.

Well today my Suzuki plug came in and I completed the job. I tried to find the right magnetic plug but the Volusia is not listed...

Use the search and plug in your info. MP-6 for oil, and MP-5 for final drive.

Everyone has a photographic memory.....Some just don't have any film.

If you park somewhere and that plug and washer gives up and leaks, don't decline the first offer because someone will think it is a Harley and give you 3 times what your bike is worth.

I read the other day that Harley sales and values are way down. In part the economy and the baby boomers are losing interest in the product line. Maybe the baby boomers are moving on to BMW's or wheelchairs.

HD price their bikes where only boomers can afford it, but they market to the younger generation who either are still crotchers or lost their job in Silicon Valley. HD can't be stupid, they must have decided that the boomers are a lost cause from age and HD is willing to wait for the crotchers getting old enough that they can't do the clamshell position on bikes any longer. So, HD will be slow for about 10 years then come back again when crotchers start to look like us boomers.

The search for that site shows it to be a MP 06, but you should double check on the search feature on the left on the home page.
