So I did an oil change today on my YZ426F, and I cleaned the oil strainer for the first time since I've owned the bike. What is this stuff? It appears cloth like or very fine steel wool. Bottom line should I be concerned???? The oil strainer seems to have done it's job, but where does this crap come from?
