Hey Guys,

I just got my first service done on my 899 and was suprised to see how much metal was on the drain plug. Anyone else with a 899/1199 get this much metal on the plug? Is this even normal?

It's about normal for this model.

I've seen much more, and less as well.

If you have a look down deep into the pleats of the filter element you will also get a nasty surprise.

I recommend splitting the oil change interval in half and do the oil/filter changes at 6,000 kms.

I'm amazed the OEM plug picked up that much mine didn't. When I went aftermarket that's what mine looked like on the second change.
