I was going to say sprag. If it was just replaced but the sump not cleaned out it might look like that. Be glad it wasn't in the oil pump.

Boldor, I take it you are doing it yourself? If not who are you using? I have a sprag replacement coming up hopefully just after Christmas and am tossing up between cleaning the shed to do it myself or getting someone else to do it. (I'm just out of Canberra if you were wondering)

Hi Ed,

Yes a difficult one. Here in the Hunter, anyone who could hold a spanner was snaffled by the mines. There are only two bike mechanics left in the whole of Newie. I get on very well with my car mechanic and asked him if he wanted a cashie. As it turns out he won't take my money but asks that I come and be his lacky. Win/win. No cost and learn a bit more about wielding a spanner. The job would've been done by now but my brother insists that the trouble I have with tuning the Keihins is to do with the port job done on the inlet ports so I am replacing the head with a spare that I have and we are still waiting on the gasket.

PM me if you want to know anymore info 'cause I irregularly check the T3 threads now that I am getting about on a KTM Duke.

If its any consolation I had exactly the same debris in my ex race speed triple and that only had 3000 miles on its clock. When the engine was completely stripped no damage found. I work on the principle that the strainer did its job I stopping debris circulating.

I have since put 100 miles on the the S3 after the rebuild and she pulls a alot better now , and sounds more angry .
Just need to set up the carbs a bit better.

My oil is now very clean , and not being burn off, as before.

Looks like your bike is chewing up its big end and/or crank bearings and ****ting them out!

Feel free to share your sump pics. Ive now scared all the local T3 owners and 955 owners to check theirs in my area.

Ooh, not pretty... Hoping you found out via scheduled downtime and maintenance and not the other way?

Cheers,

Is therea down time on a modern bike? I think not. They keep going then they are FUBAR and too expensive to repair.

I don't know, I'm scheduling a weekend off the road for mine in the next month or so to replace valve stem seals. Bloody T6 requires the motor out of the frame to take the head off...

Cheers,
