I thought I do an early dump at 300 miles.....

All went well.....have a look at the sump plug.....mostly small filings but one quite largish piece of metal / swarf.....

Anyone else completed there first oil change themselves..??

Congrats, now you can do another change 300 miles at the required 600 ;)

You'll be seeing pieces of metal that big until your 10th oil change, 100% normal.

I had all kinds of interesting stuff in my oil at first change, including big flakes of purple paint. Which Ducati NA,couldn't identify!

Agreed, the metal debris will continue for at least a few oil changes..

Keep her happy with a high-quality engine oil and OEM filter each time :)
