Changed the oil after my 100+ mile ride today on which I hit 700 miles.

Pulled the OEM filter out and it looked fine except for hundreds of flecks of material of every color.

I assume it's just remnants of paint pen marks and gasket material. We use yellow paint pens in my plant to designate that a bolt or screw has been torqued. No idea what the purple, blue, and pink specks are from.

Replaced the drain plug with a low-profile magnetic one from 3D Cycle, installed a K&N oil filter, and used some new Castrol motorcycle oil synthetic blend in 20-50. Runs fine and the engine is quieter.
