Shavings in oil and coolant

Recommended Posts

Got a 2011 kx450 and after a ride i drained oil and found shavings and then I drained the coolant and found a little more.  Any ideas?  pulling the motor today to dig in.  Have no idea really what to look for though.  Help!!!!

Sorry to not get back sooner. I didn't have oil in the coolant just coolant in the oil and had some shavings in the coolant. I have the motor tore down right now and seems that the water pump seals have gone out. Hoping that is all. Never done a rebuild on a 4 stroke so learning a lot as we go

Probably just the pump.

Just be sure to get out all water from the tranny.

A little drop of coolant will contaminate the oil

Buy the cheapest oil and do 2 fast oil change and the 3 time poor the right oil.
