Cool2 Ez drain oil drain plug?

I'm looking to see if anyone knows a place that sells easy drain oil plugs for our bikes? One where you can just extend a nozzle and let it drain. Preferably one that's magnetic as well.

My dealer here uses 10w40 castrol GTX dino oil.

Dealer says don't switch to synthetic until 10,000 - 20,000 km break in.
