That pic was most likely off of a blow up raptor. Even though, I do regular oil changes at 40 hours and there was definitely some dirt on mine

You think it's dirt or just clutch lining material you are seeing??

I think it was a nightmare! Because that's what I'm gonna think if I open mine up and that's what I find!

So I changed my oil today and pulled the screen out for inspection. First off, it's kind of a pain to get to and I dosent seem like Yamaha even made it to be serviced with the placement and position of it. Had to unbolt the tank and maneuver it around to get to the two Allen head screws. But once I did get it out there was a little bit of garbage on it. A small amount of rtv flecks from the last time I put it together I'm guessing. And what upon further inspection looked like lint with misc pieces of tiny debris attached to it mixed with oil. I'll tell you one thing, I'm glad it's there to catch all those little bits of crap that somehow made its way in there, and all in all I was pretty impressed on how clean it was after the two years I have owned it. I am pretty good at changing the oil regularly and I use the same high quality oil and filter every time. Yamaha original equipment oil filter, and Motul V300 10w-40. One of the best oils on the planet imo. The top oil used in moto gt racing all around the world. Those bikes run over 200mph and turn over 17k rpm for hours on end, and Motul is the oil that keeps everyone of them alive! Enough said!

Happy for you that the screen wasn't in bad shape, sounds about how mine looked. You're right that the thing sure doesn't seem like its meant to be serviced, but man the relief I felt when it was done. Now that you mention it I'll prolly do mine again since I did the top end again last summer, and I'm waiting on rear bearing carrier anyway.

I wouldn't wanna be a member of any club that would have me.

Did mine yesterday. Clean as a whistle. But I change oil and filter every 7 hours or so. Bike just hit 30. Was easy to get off. Just un mount it so you can move it up some. Then put allen wrench on each bolt. Pull out. Drain what's in line. Hit with brake cleaner.

Yeah at 30 hours it should be clean. My raptor had 200 hours on it when I checked it and it still wasn't too bad
