Do you check the oil in your cars for metal? If you get some metal, what will you do about it besides worry?
I wipe the drain plug off, replace oil and filter, then do it again 5000 miles later lol

Unless there's something clearly wrong...

I use magnetic drain plugs in everything that has a drain plug.
The amount of metallic fuzz you get on one can be very helpful in early diagnosis and evaluation.

Put the most powerful magnetic drain plug you can find in there. Don't be too alarmed at what you see the first time you change the oil. It can be worrisome.

But if it continues to shed metal at a high rate, then you are wearing down something. Usually cam and lifter issues in the car engines I am used to wrenching on, but in our case gears as well. It is much better to address this on your own timetable rather than the gremlin's schedule.

Check again. Most drain plugs in bikes or cars do not have a magnet. In both cases, a magnetic drain plug is an after market accessory.
