Oil Drain Plug Washer

Does the oil pan drain plug on the DL1000 have a washer?

I notice that there have been 13 views and no responses. Either the question isn't clear, no one who read it changes their own oil, or no one wants to answer. Which is it?

Yes, it does have an aluminum crush washer...part #470153-001 on www.bikebandit.com.

Oil Drain Plug Washer

Does this mean the plug washer should be replaced every oil change because it is crushed from the last oil change ?

It will be less likely to leak if you replace it, but replacement is not mandatory. You might take the washer and the plug to your local auto parts store and try to match it with a new one...some are rubber coated.

Not worth paying to have one shipped, IMO.

I would replace it if the drain plug was seeping oil when properly torqued. You should get at the very least, 5 oil changes without worrying about the washer.

...a Honda 12 mm will fit. Could be much cheaper than the OEM Suzuki part. I usually change them when...well...they look "crushed" !

I'm not replacing mine until it starts leaking. Has anyone had to replace their washer because it starting leaking?

My car drain plug and washer look exactly the same and it never has leaked after at least 15 oil changes.

Chris, I tend to agree with your thoughts but here is another to consider. What materials are used for cars and bikes. Different metals could make the difference with your car parts having a longer service life. Maybe, maybe not. Strom On.
