Fine metal grindings/"filings" are a normal part of transmission operation. Change your oil and filter regularly and watch for an increase in the quantity and nature of the debris.

Same as greyracer said. My 426 does the same thing. I found a bunch of particles in my filter that were big, ended up being a shift fork getting chewed up. Just rebuilt my engine and had a bunch of fine sparkles. Changed the oil and they went away. I wouldn't worry.

I just changed my oil and replaced both the frame and case plug with new magnetic plugs to help collect this debris...
