Trx300FW - How to make magnetic oil fill caps

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys! 


After asking around on how to add magnets to the diffs to catch metal fragments in the oil, @_Wilson_™ shared his take on how he added magnets to the filler caps. I decided to do a similar method and make a tutorial about it.
 

Here it goes!
How to make magnetic differential oil fill caps for your TRX300FW. 


The purpose of the mod is, as your differential gears wear down, instead of letting the metal fragments float about, it will allow them to be captured by the magnet.

This removes them from the oil, and prevents accelerated wear from the fragments being washed into your gears and bearings. 
 

 

Parts: 
Magnets
epoxy (non-magnetic)
epoxy (magnetic (optional))
gear oil resistant gasket maker (Honda bond or Permatex RTV green)

Degreaser


Here is my video explaining how I made mine:

 

 

 

Hope it helps you all out!
 
I was researching this topic, and only saw limited discussion (mostly hear say) on doing this. So i bit the bullet, made one, tested it, and here we are🙂 

If it helped make sure to drop a thumbs up on the video or heart the post (or both)!

Note:
I accept no responsibility if you damage your stuff (or self) trying to replicate (or use) this mod. Do it at your own risk.
