    I have one on my s1000, and also my race bike. Brilliant bits of kit (remember to keep a spare tube in your toolbox if away for a few days though)...

    problem is,you'll never get to see how much/if any swarf you have in your oil (magnetic sump plug),giving you an idea on gearbox/engine wear.

    Is there any real advantage over a simple warm up and drain ? Looks like a solution to a problem that doesn't really exist..

    stops the sump bolt from stripping or the sump cracking if over zealous when tightening.
