It is usually pretty normal to see some metal shavings in the oil filter cavity. With the bike being a wet clutch as well as the engine oil lubricating the transmission you will see some from the clutch and some aluminum from the gears in the transmission. If you search the forum you can find other threads about the same question and more details on it.
