First time KTM owner, did my first oil change after the break in period and found numerous metallic shavings stuck to the drain plug. Saw a previous thread on this and most said this was normal, just a little concerned about my new and expensive toy.

Probably my post since I just went through this myself and so far everything has been good, especially being the 1st oil change I wouldn't worry about it

If it's just shavings it's normal.

Yep, pretty normal. Did you check the screen too? I included my screen after my first oil change at 0.5-hrs. Photo
