Metal in my motor oil
98 k1200rs, 31k. I changed my oil yesterday and found the magnet plug clean, but some flakes of bearing metal on the plate below the oil filter. I cut the oil filter open and found some more flakes.
I figure I must have a bearing that spun or something. Is there any history of crank, cam, rod or some other bearings failing on these motors? Looking for a place to start my search to minimize disassembly.
There doesn't seem to be any loss of power or new noises.
