With the first service the OEM drain plug was replaced with the DIMPLE Magnetic Drain Plug. Had these installed on the 650’s and this product is a better option than the stock OEM plug.


The required plug size for the V-Strom 1000 2014+ model is:


The stock Suzuki plug actually has a magnet on it, but you wouldn’t know it. It is so small and basically not even magnetic, it won’t even pick up a small piece of metal! Not only that, the DIMPLE plug is a much better quality plug, with made in the USA steel, as opposed to the cheap alloy that many OEM manufacturers use. With every oil change you won’t be worried about rounding the head of the bolt. Plus steel has a natural attraction to magnets!

Speaking of magnets, the DIMPLE magnet is so strong!
