Default Magnetic drain plug?

Has anybody sourced a magnetic oil drain plug which fits the bike? Just did my third oil change, and still finding metal flakes and chips in filter and oil drain pan larger than prove comfortable for me.

worst case scenario, you could just pick up a small rare earth magnet from lee valley and stick it to the drain bolt. the rare earth magnets are strong enough to stay attached under any circumstances.

The drain plug used on the CBR is a standard size which Honda uses on a number of other single cylinder bikes. Al Bakers XR's Only sells magnetic drain plugs... order one for the Honda XR400R. Just make sure you order the one for the engine, and not the one used on the frame down tube.

XR's shipping price of $10 minimum, plus tax, makes this a $24 item (total). You can get it on eBay for $15.76 with free shipping, see BikeMaster Steel Magnetic Oil Drain Plug - 12mm x 1.5 FHM050-S12-1.5 Honda | eBay

Are you sure this is the right size? It doesn't list the cbr250r on here.
