    metal dust in oil

    doing an oil change few days ago draining and took a light up to the oil and found small micro sized specs in the oil

    i used mobil 1 full syn for 27000 miles and just recently switched to yamalube convention with yamalube filter

    32000 miles

    i change oil in 4000 intervals

    i can look in through the oil fill cap and 300 miles after oil change there is more specs, recently replaced the clutch 5000 miles ago

    i was wondering if this is nornal and what everybody else finds in their oil, bike runs perfect apart from the cct making noise on cold starts

    It's hard to tell what it is. Drop the oil pan and have a look at the strainer, pick up and bottom of the pan.

    There will be microscopic pieces of metal in any new machine..in your case I would think its tiny pieces of new clutch plate. If it bothers you do as Lou says and drop the sump for a closer inspection.

    If you're concerned then send a sample to a place like Blackstone Labs for analysis. Otherwise you're just guessing.
