Metal on sump plug

Just thought I would do the right thing and change my oil and filter after a track day. Big surprise to find a lot of hardened metal stuck to the sump plug magnet. No S**t it looked like a porcupine. Bike only just clicked over 3000klm and had its first service at its scheduled time. I suppose I wont be needing to put lighter bits on my bike, its doing it for me. Would post a photo but not that techy. They weren't just metal filings either.

Probably the gold coloured coating in the crankcase (yep they did it in the inside) flaking off. When we took our old crankcase apart it was only starting to do it, and my replacdment crankcase inside was already silver coloured.

Was certainly not a coating from what I could see. Was more like the edge of the gears. They were chunks

Hey Gaz,
I'm not surprised you're finding some shaving in there after a hard day of riding on a new engine.
If you think it was an excessive amount it wouldn't hurt to get an oil analysis and contact your service rep.

Had the same issue with one of motors we had. Metallurgical assay showed the material to be consistent with nickel alloy steel used in the transmission gears. I vaguely recall when this probably happened. My fault.

Additionally, that oil looks more like un refined crude than oil. WTF is going on inside that motor?
