Metal Shavings in My Oil Filter

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I bought a 2002 Wr250f five months ago and ive only been out on a few rides. I recently changed the oil and when doing so i found some finely grinded up metal shavings behind the oil filter. I didnt see any in the actual oil, but im not much of a mechanic and just curious to if know if this is normal or should i be concerned?

If its non magnetic it more then likely would be clutch. I think that the metal plates in the clutch are also steel. It could be shaved pieces of that, or gears, or anything like that. Do you notice any grinding? I dont know enough about this to tell you what it is, but there are people on here who know a wholeeee lot more then me
