* About quality and texture, The drain bolt is machined from aluminium and finished with a deep red anodizing with the magnet securely attached to the tip. Aluminium crush washer, set screw and allen key are also included in the package.
* About the feeling of use, This is the second drain bolt from SP Takegawa I have purchased due to the addition of another motorcycle to the family so obviously I am more then happy with this product. The magnet works and is good to see the tip of the drain bolt covered with a metal paste like material when replacing the oil.
* Products to buy together, The Grom does not have a traditional cartridge style oil filter so I will also be purchasing a new clutch cover with this feature but an still undecided between the versions available from SP Takegawa and Kitaco for this particular motorcycle.
* Difficulty of installation, Installation is best to be achieved when carrying out an oil change. My ehaust header pipe is directly below the oil drain port so some aluminium foil is used to minimise contact. Once the oil is fully drained simply install the SP Takegawa drain bolt and torque it down to 24nm. The process was completed in 15 minutes with no difficultly.
* Cost performance and comparison with other products, The SP Takegawa drain bolt is higher priced then the Kijima drain bolt which is also magnetic but I find the SP Takegawa version much more appealing with it's anodized finish and also has the additional feature of being able to secure the temperature sensor through the drain bolt.
* About shipping and packaging, I am happy to wait 8 weeks on average for my parts to arrive in Sydney Australia via Webike's sea freight which comes with tracking and insurance so I know I'm covered in case something was to go wrong but with there outstanding bubble wrapping and boxing there have been no problems.
* Any concerns, cautions, or advice when purchasing, SP Takegawa offer this product in different sizes so be sure to select the part number specific to your motorcycle. Use the product reviews to assist in making a decision on your purchase.
