    This will only filter ferrous metals like iron, not non-ferrous metals like copper, tin, lead. Hey, but it's better than nothing, right.

    If you really want to keep it clean...change it and filter according to the maintenance schedule or more often if you run the dog crap out of it all the time.

    agreed there is no replacement for maintenance service! The magnets get some of the smaller particles in the 1 micron level. Can never have the engine oil too clean.

    Maybe cut about a four inch wide rubber band from an old motor cycle inner tube, slip this over the oil filter can and then stuff a few magnets inside of the rubber band?

    haha nice.... Then when they fall out look for them or better get a magnet stick. There are so many creative members here on the yammi side.

    Hey if you want to waste money on a virtually useless magnet for your ALL aluminum engine waverunner, feel free......It's your dime.
    I'll change my oil regularly & use only OEM Yamaha filters when I do it, no magnet required.

    sorry i won't agree with you on that. Just read the the old thread. I go along with rossnemo and the others. You will still trap particles and "very fine" particles, the ones that the filter won't. Now i hear you saying that the manufacturers would have used it long time if it worked. Not necessary true, they still wont fix parts of their engines they know that dont work. If you looked at the link they cut up an oil filter that shows black particle sooth attached to the oil filter cap where the magnets were. Where did that sooth come from? Thats ok. My engine will just run better than yours and longer hahaha....and you will never understand why.

    Again, only if it's ferrous metal wear (iron and steel). Non-ferrous metals like aluminum, tin, lead, and copper are not attracted by a magnet.

    Magnets attract ferrous. If it catches even some of those its good. Some other stuff copper or whatever by the filter.
