I got a 2006 950 Adventure S a couple of months back; a lot of fun, but some headaches too. Most recently I had a clutch plate bolt fall out as I left the gas/petrol station. I didn't know what the noise was but thought it must be related to my previous problem which had been a lack of hydrolic clutch fluid. Not being too far (about 10 miles) from home I thought I would nurse it home. Nope. After a couple of miles the noise was worse and ther oil light started flickering, so I stopped. When I got it home (on a trailer) I removed the clutch cover to find a slightly mangled bolt, a nice groove worn in the case and a broken spring. ...and all the metal that had been part of the case was now in the oil. =S I drained the oil, cleaned BOTH oil screens, replaced the filter, put in new bolt and spring, added new oil (4L? the manual says 3L!!!). NOTE: the bottom oil screen one was THICK with metal shavings, which I assume stopped oil getting through causing the oil light to come on. The tank screen didn't have much on it at all, and the filter itself looked surprisingly clean. I started it up and after a few seconds of clattering the oil got round and everything seemed ok. After shutting it down to top up the oil (as instructed in the manual), I left it running to get up to temperature to get a good check of the oil level. It ran ok, bit then started clanking a bit (seemed like the left side of the engine) and the oil light started flickering. I figured it had collected some more metal on the bottom oil screen, rather than lay it on it's side to clean the screen I decided to dump the oil, clean the screen, then put the oil back in. ...in hindsight I think I should have just laid it down. The screen had quite a bit more metal in it, which is removed now. And finally to the point of my story, when I took out the bottom drain plug A LOT of oil came out. Judging by the 4L bottle I caught it in (with the side cut off) it must be nearly all of it. Is this bad?? I thought most of it stayed in the tank. ...I had a sod of a time removing the left gas tank while it was FULL of gas in order to achieve the same thing for the first emptying. I'm worried that there is some serious damage somewhere, but I'm not sure what it would be. I'm assuming it would be the oil pump that sends the oil back to the tank, but wouldn't it just pump all the small bits of metal that got through the bottom screen into the tank? I'm scared I've bricked my engine already, and that it'll be off the road for another two weeks! ...motosport.com held my order because of a back order of the top screen (which I realised I didn't even need) but they didn't bother to tell me! I only found out when the parts didn't turn up when they should and I checked on them! Sorry for the long post, I wanted to include the back story so you'd have a better understanding of the issue. Also thanks to everyone here for an incredibly useful forum, I've already used it a lot!! I'll be getting a year support package as soon as my wife isn't likely to kill me for spending more money on stuff related to this bike (I already had to have the fork seals replaced).
