So a little about myself first. I'm 20 years old and a novice mechanic. My friend had a bike making a loud clicking noise when he turned it over. I told him to bring it over before he drops a bunch of money at a dealership. So I pulled the ignition cover off and the stator bolts came loose.
I found some plastic bits in the bottom of the case and under the oil pump. I'm wondering now should I just clean out under the pump or do you all think there could be bits of plastics on the other side of the engine also?
I drained the oil and from what I can tell there Is no plastic coming out the main drain plug. Photo

In short should I get a new stator? Or just replace the bolts. I plan on flushing the system with a few quarts of oil. There was some noticible amount of fine metal shavings in the oil filter and strainer. But I'll get a new filter and clean strainer. Photo
