I have a 14 WR450. With 70+ hours on it the last two oil changes I've found bright blue like the front fender blue metal particles in the oil filter. I use yamalube semi and change oil every 100 miles. What can possibly be cussing this debrie.

Is the debris metal, rubber, plastic, etc?  If it is blue metal, does it look painted or a blueing of the metal due to extreme high temperatures?

You have to put them in photobucket first and post the link.
