metal shavings!!!

Recommended Posts

i own a 06 crf250 with maybe 15 hours on it. i just changed my oil that i put in for the winter. when i took out the oil filter i noticed real small metal shavings. i believe their aluminum cause i couldnt get them to stick to a magnet. i dont believe their was that many. i've only had the bike running once since bout christmas time. i use maxim4 extra oil. i just want some advice on what to do or if i even have anything to really worry about.

Its probably just pieces of clutch material. I wouldn't worry about it.

Within the first ten hours it's normal to see small aluminum/metal particles in your oil. It's a new engine, and the parts need to settle.

It could also be bits and pieces of clutch material. Do you work the clutch a lot?
