gold specks in oil

3 posts in this topic

I just changed my oil after about 5 rides. The oil is really concentrated with gold specks. I wondering if this is the clutch material or what? Also had quite a bit of metal particles in the oil filter still. This is the fourth oil change since I've owned the bike (probably 10-15 rides). Is this normal?

Nothing to worry about, it will stop making so many particles after about 300 miles.

How many miles are you doing oil changes? When the bike is new, you should change it extremely often, like every 50-75 miles.

If it continues heavily after 300 miles, either something is wrong, or you're using the clutch WAY too much.
