The good news is that you've noticed something is wrong before a catastrophic failure occured. I'd think a teardown is in order to try and find out where it's coming from.

I'm sure grayracer513 will chime in, he'll have a better idea as to possible culprits than I..

I can't really tell to be honest. They sure as heck aren't quiet engines, even in perfect shape, so it's hard to say.

Mine isn't any quieter--so hopefully yours (and mine for that matter) are both fine

... it (is) easier to post vids than pics on here..

The process is exactly the same as the one you used to post the video; put the picture on a photo host and link to it with a button on the editor toolbar.

How hard do you ride it?

It may be the drive dogs on the sides fo the gears. They tend to wear fairly fast. You will know when they wear too much because it will start slipping out of gear and feel like a clutch slipping. What that happens you have to replace the associated shifting fork too.

Did you see a similar amount of particles in the past or did you not pay attention? Did you just change to a metal filter?
