    Well then... trouble brewing?

    I pulled the tracks off my '15 900 XP yesterday for the summer and did the usual full service / grease at the same time. Dropped the front diff oil and found a few "flakes" in the oil/ stuck to the drain plug magnet. Sprayed it all clean thru the fill plug until all was coming out clean.
    Plan on running it for 25-30kms and dropping the oil again to see if there is any further issue. Have about 1300kms on it. Winter time I run the camso tracks, summer is 26" Bighorns on 14" wheels.

    Hoping its not a sign of big trouble brewing......

    Mine looks like crap every time I change it. Ive just started changing it every time I do the engine oil because there is so little oil in there. I always have fine material on the magnet but haven't notice any large flakes.
