300rr first oil change. lots of metal shavings. normal?

Recommended Posts

I need reassurance.  Changed the transmission oil on new beta 300rr.  The drain plug magnet looked like the head of a troll doll with all the metal shavings sticking out from it.  5 hours on bike.  I suspect this is normal for the break in.  Is it?  

I've only owned used bikes and have never seen this.

Mine had looked, and still does look, like that but not as bad as a troll's head.

If its looks like fine filings, normal. Dont want to see big chunks. The amount of filings will settle down as it breaks in.
