Hello,

I found very small metallic particle in my oil filter. The bike is a yzf 450 2010 got only 15 hours. Found about 100 very small particles on a washable filter...

Is it normal???? what about you ????

I found kept finding some in my 06 yz450 filter, after a while I started to notice the kicker would bind up a little. I am near 200 hours. The crank bearings are totally worn and I was told this is where it was coming from, so before detonation I am rebuilding it. I think it is kind of normal but if the particles get to be sizable then I would worry. Just keep an eye on the filter and the oil fresh and I think it should be all good.:smirk:

Normal, thats why we change the oil. Change the oil every couple of rides and you should be alright.
