Ran it through a paint filter, one or two very small flakes of metal, lots of Honda bond liquid gasket sealer. Second change I will check the screen, I bet there will be sealer on that also.

Not bad. My experience with hard break-ins is that it's that second oil change which I do at about 200 miles where I find the most stuff along with dark oil. You may want to do the centrifugal filter at that time too especially if the oil looks suspect at the next oil change.

Did u really post a thread about changing your oil? Think the manual suggests at 650 mi by the way. Change the brake fluid while your at it, as the master cyclinder might have let some metal particles off in that first 2 hours of use.

I always find hondabond. When they put the gaskets together they put excess in the corners and it almost always get inside. should send the oil out to a lab to have it tested. would be interesting to see results.

Liquid gasket can mess up bearings and clog oil passages not to mention block the screen.

Hey supermoto, die in a fire you have two posts and they are both rude! Karma will bite you some day my friend.

oil is cheaper to change than repairing a blown engine. It is better to be safe than sorry.

It is the same mind set with firearms and weapons, it is better to have a clean gun than a dirty sticking gun cylinder, slide, firing pin etc.

You have to be to get some of the bolts off these things. Some one gave a little Asian dude a impact wrench and some red lock tight. Lucky for us it has good quality bolts and not the cheap crap bolts or we would have lots of problems.
