    I found a loose screw in the clutch case that was depositing metal shavings in the motor

    Yes. Looks like taking it apart is a necessity now. These engines usually last about 50k – 75k kms before requiring an engine overhaul /rebuild. Mine lasted 51k before I had to rebuild the head. The rocker arms had worn out badly and the bike was mixing the coolant with the oil

    Don’t jump to the worst straight away. My engine made noises only when warm and turned out it was simply the cam chain tensioner being a bit sticky which caused chain slap on the guides. Could you take a video of the noise? I’ll tell you if it’s same.
