I just recieved my CRF and put about 30 min on it. When I went to change the oil and iol filter I found some very fine metal shavings in the oil filter. I haven't ran it since. I am wondering if anybody else has had this happen and is it just something with the 4 stroke?
Thanks

thats what happens when you break in a new motor thats why you should make the first two oil changes pretty quick after one ride at the most

Yup, exactly right and this is the reason for running in on a mineral oil and changing it and the filters at least 2 times in the first 2 hours.

After run in change to semi or fully synthetic and roost hard

PS: also change the gear box oil on your CRF after the first 2 hours
