I say no issue, friend says issue: metal flakes on oil plug
2003 DL1000 with 61,947 miles
Changed my oil today, always use synthetic blend, always use K&N gold oil filter and always change oil at 5000 miles.
I pull the oil plug and see 3 small silver in color slithers of metal hanging onto the magnet that is in the plug.
I say typical, buddy who wonders why I change my own oil says ISSUE on a motor with over 60,000 miles.
