Yup. Common - especially on low mileage motors. The drain bolt is doing its job - collecting metal bits.

You mean like this. Here is a post I put on 4th Oct, last year. I did not know how to link the actual post so this is a cut and paste.

Yeah I am with the other supporting guys. Good on you for having a go and doing it yourself. And good on you for the honest post about the mess.

I enjoy working on the bike myself. Its not about the money. If you do not have the threads in the cover here is a picture or two on how simple it is to do yourself with an 8mm thread tap.

45min of "careful" prying, taping, etc. and i finally got that bitch off, pita. Every other bike i've owned, F4i, ZX-10R, RC51 and still my ZX-6 race bike is easy enough for an idiot to do, but jesus that ducati engineer should be fired.

on a different note, this is the oil drain bolt, notice the "shavings" it collected, thoughts? is this common?

bike is about 2k on the clock, dash replaced once so going off what i recall before it was replaced.

also, the tech manual say every other oil change to basically take the entire oil pan off etc. to "...clean the oil pickup gauze filter"? blow it out w/compressed air? that seems like another joy of maintaining this bike, anyone done it?
45 minutes must be a new record

1-2 minutes is all it should take, even though it's still a pain

Regarding the porcupine quills on the drain plug magnet.
I've seen them worse and I've seen them better.
In every case the wear metals has settled down by about the second or third oil change.
I also think the quick shifter actuation may generate more wear metals. If you're inclined to use it at all.

well understand i wasn't about to just yank the "shit" out of something i've never worked on before and i didn't really have anything good enough that was "delicate" enough to grip it, plus i've learned slower and done right is better than faster and fkin it up.

i do everything myself unless it requires breaking the cases open and that includes the cars and truck.

thanks for the pic brad, i'll get a tap kit to add to the tool collection.

2 of your large bolts in your box used for attaching your passenger footpegs work perfectly.
Yup, that worked for me.

Hey guys simple question.

How much different is the oil level through the sight glass with the bike on the ground vs. on a pitbull stand?

I'm sure it is different, but can we just compensate for it?

The bike just need to be level, doesn't have to be on the ground. I normally have the bike on front stand (garage stand) so I would just jack the rear up and rest it on a piece of wood the same thickness as how much the front tyre is above the ground.

Is there a rubber gasket (aside from the crush washer) on the drain plug?
