wr 400 shavings in oil filter

Hi everyone new to this site and looking for info. Looking at getting a 2000 wr 400.There is metal shavings in the oil filter,is this normal.He said it has done this since new.Any bad reveiws.Hows starting the bike.thanks.

I don't have an answer for you, but you are smart for not taking his word for it and posting the question here.

Every YZ/WR 400 I've ever seen produces shavings...been inside two of them and never have seen the source

Okay thanks for the replies.I think i will try to find out more.I did not think this was normal for a bike that was 8 years old? Thanks

My '99 still has little shavings in the oil filter from time to time. Not always but sometimes.

It wasnt for me.

4th gear showed signs of use, check the .chewed gears. topic.

It is not necessary your case, could just be normal use if pieces are small and alike.

I have a 2000 as well, they must have left out the shave injection on mine since I've never seen them.

Yours is a first.

I have never seen one that dosn't produce shavings. Totaly normal.

Get a magnetic drain plug.

My 99 always had shavings. I don't know where the endless supply comes from, but none none of the internal components seemed to get any smaller, and the shavings never seemed to cause any damage.

Straight cut gears, clutch plates ? :thumbsup:
