2150 miles should there still be metal in my filter when changing my oil?

6 posts in this topic

I have a 2005 XR650L. I chanded my oil the 1 time at 200 miles,2 time 850 miles,3 time at 850 miles,4 time 1200 miles,and today at 2150 miles I put a scotts SS oil filter at 1200 miles. I am still finding small parts of metal in the filter. I run the bike on Mobil 1 15w50 since the 200 mile oil change.The bike runs great, no noises, and the oil is always clean. Should I worry or is the oil filter just doing its job? Thanks

Small parts of metal? If you are talking about the occasional flake of metal I'd say not big deal. Especially at only 2000, still a fairly young engine.
