My bike 2008 TE has 3500 km on the clock, I bought it unseen when it had 2600 km on. I'm going on a trip next week and last night gave the bike a once over including an oil change. When I pulled the sump plug I notice that the oil was grey and there were steel particles on the magnet. The oil filter was very clogged and heavy. I then pulled the bag filter on the left, the one next the the neutral switch and I found one intact steel washer and bits of what looked like a second one laying in the cavity behind the filter along with a lot of metal shavings in the filter. The bag filter on the clutch side was not too bad. I checked the ACCT and found it to be 4 or 5 clicks. Does anybody have any idea where these two washers came from? They are +- 14mm outside dia and 7mm inside dia. I boxed everything up and put a new charge of oil and oil filter in and started the bike; the noise from the engine that I took for granted was normal on these bikes is a lot quieter. I plan to ride it for a couple of km and then drop the oil and have another look, do you guys think this is wise or should I do something else?
