I assume those pieces are small, could you take a pic with a coin next to them and let us know if they stick to a magnet or not.

those look bigger than the typical small metal shavings in the oil
i'd get it checked out
Typical iron parts in an engine that can get pieces in the oil are the crankshaft, conrods, and wrist pins. Do Ducatis have floating wrist pins? If yes then you also have the wrist pin keepers. How does the engine run?

Damn. I really hope this doesn't turn into a nightmare for you. I've never heard of piece of metal that large before - usually, people are freaking out over shavings and such. Keep us in the loop...

Good attitude! Every time you ride think of what you want to do with that new engine.

I didn't respond because I don't recognize the pieces. The most common item found is 1/2 rings, but those don't look like them. Another posibility, if someone has messed with the pistons, is bits of an oil ring. A quick leakdown should tell you.

Holy Toledo! If I got pieces that large out of a 7.0 liter V-8 I'd be freeking out. I think you've got two options: run it until it kills itself then rebuild, or simply remove the engine and tear it down now. If it was me, I'd go for option two.

Since you've got some spare cash to buy stuff, can you lend me?

Hope your 900 is doing OK, keep the 411 coming

Hey puppy it's been about three months from your last post. How is the bike running or is it down? Have you found out what the metal was from and what damage has or has not been done.
