I did an oil change about 0830, found a bunch of metal in the filter.

started pulling parts off to see what is about to break, only to find nothing on top nor in the clutch. Found none in the crank case oil, pretty much none in the frame oil.
None in the valve area and I am out of ideas, so i am just going to run it until something lets loose.

It is non aluminum, so it is either a bearing or the con rod, or one of the gears.
But with no shavings in the clutch area, I have no clue.

We'll find out soon enough.

Looked like a LOT of fun.

I dont know how bad it is, yet.

Put a stethoscope all over the engine and all sounds fine....

I can tear it down now, or after something lets go. I think I will see what breaks and hope it does not put a hole in the case.

I'll ride it a few miles this week and change the oil this weekend.

See how it looks then

3Weezy, woods are nothing like Rio, but loads of fun. This will be an intermediate ride so if you're there we will be at the east side trail head at noon. I'm driving an 2010 ORANGE Dodge truck with a 03 KTM 125sx with yellow number plates and no numbers on it. Come over and introduce yourself. FYI---I'm an older guy that will take some breaks along the trails.

Great! I have been out there a few years ago when it rained and the bike was new to me. Riding alone out there sucks so it is good to see a group. I will be in a black Dodge Crewcab with #97 Honda in back. See you around noon.

We got 6 in our group right now with 3Weezy. Don't think it's going to be too dusty since the rain earlier in the week.

Glad 3Wizzy and Truckin Thumper made it out today. Forest was in great shape for riding and weather couldn't have been better.
