    I just stumbled across this too. Seems pretty neat. If you get one, let us know how it works for you.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    seems like someone thought of something to ensure total draining...

    Fram made kits with valves like this. It also came with a knurled metal cap with rubber o-ring in case you hit something and bumped your valve to turn on oil flow. The knurled cap sort of defeats the purpose I guess. In theory you could drill out your drain bolt and machine a metal finger tight cap like that



    I bought a kit for some car we had and never put it on. Mostly because it doesn't save time or make things cleaner in the end. The oil takes longer to run out than the time saved by not using a socket and ratchet to pull the OEM drain bolt. Just another one of those products you buy for your grandpa at Christmas...

    I've used one branded Dorman EZ-Drain that was similar to the Fram style with a knurled knob on a Chevy S-10 and Isuzu Axiom. If you don't have a skid plate protecting that area I would be worried about accidentally hitting the lever on the Fumoto style. I think all cars should come with these and Speed Bleeders.

    Fumoto Valve | Qwik Valve™
    I have used those valves before & at first was a little worried that the snap ring would fail & drain the oil .
    They hold up very well on autos & trucks but I wouldn't feel comfortable using one on a motorcycle because of ground clearence or a stick or rock hitting the thing.

    Yeah but the location of the drain might be ok for the TW. Especially with a better bash plate.

    it does have a spring loaded lock on it to prevent an accidental opening

    the oil plug on my car is higher than other parts of the car so I feel comfortable with it...I haven't put it on yet cause I did my first oil change before it came in...on a motorcycle I would want it on the back side of the engine or very well protected on the side

    that's what I was thinking

    I worked for a heavy equipment rental company while living in the Indianapolis area. We used the Fram style units, they worked great. Quick hook up and compact, no spills using the drain tube... Highly recommend this type. If they make them for motorcycles I want one for each bike.
