Thread: Magnet????

  1. #11
    I think a strong magnet would collect a lot of crap like nails and such.
    My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

    I have heard of putting a magnet on the bottom of the oil tank to catch debris in the oil.

    Ya, but the previous owner might have thought it did.

    I agree , it's seems small. However, The sensors are looking for metal, a concentrated piece of magnetic metal - down low, along with what is already there just might be enough to do the job.

    The drain plugs are usually magnetic.

    Definitely something to consider .. They do sell Magnetic Drain Plugs if it already isn't that way to begin with .. My Dyna doesn't always set the sensor off, but have been known to go ahead on a Red Light if Obvious that it's not working, Technically not legal in FL but never had a Problem after waiting a reasonable amount of time even with a LEO parked close by .. Have not had this problem with the CDH yet anyway ..

    Wisconsin and some other states have made it law. If you stop and lights do not change in a reasonable time with a motorcycle. You can when safe to do so proceed. We have a few lights near here that will not set off with a motorcycle. Even putting the stand down does not work. Another way to deal with them is to pull up far enough so the car behind you pulls up a bit and set it off.
