Same size as far as I can tell. I just serviced my 2017 RGU yesterday and the O ring supply from my 2013 Ultra Limited fit the plugs from my new bike.

Go on Ebay. You can get a 100 of them for like ten dollars. Size has been the same for probably 30 years or more.

The manual says to only replace if damaged. At 850 miles, mine look good so will reassess at 5000 miles.

They are the same and the fluid change kit with O-rings is cheap enough at the local dealer with my discount that why bother buying 100 that will degrade before I ever get to use them.

and if you have any questions, ask one of the service techs.
if you've got a good dealership you would be amazed at how helpful they can be.
