Is it a small rubber o ring?

I ask as Motorworks sent me a bag a washers for  an oil change service (Inc forks), but the only things that will go near the drain plugs are the rubber o rings. Was sort of expecting a small crush washer.

They usually have O-rings

Be careful not to strip the threads on the fork drain plugs.

The o-rings don't require as much torque to seal so they are less likely to strip out the threads in the leg.  Just make the drain screw snug.
