    Personally I think you are worrying about nothing. An oil filter traps small particles and any that are not would be so insignificant to cause no problems. As you stated non of the particles are magnetic and you just fitted a new clutch so it is highly likely to be bedding in debris from that. I would question why a bike with such low mileage needed a new clutch...wheelies?? if so you would do better checking your fork seals.

    I would go back to Mobil 1. It's a much better oil than Yamalube.

    Check out how Yamalube compairs with Mobil 1 on the test results. You will need to scroll down quite a ways to see the test results.

    I call BS. Stoppies require using the front brake.

    I would use the Yamaha one...no reason not to....also I used semi synthetic in mine at 5000k's and it didnt run as smoothly with that stuff in...recently did the 12month service and switched back to Yamalube and the motor sounds better....never had this before but hey it might just be my old ears making shit up. Once my bike is out of warranty I intend to use Fuch Silkoline comp 4 motorcycle oil. I have used this for years in my previous bikes with good results.
