Its not a problem unless you start seeing a lot of metal every weekend. I pull mine a clean off the shavings every weekend just for a check and to keep the chaincase clean.

Magnitise your dip stick by rubbing it across a magnit several times.It will help alot to catch the metal. Some are already magnitised.

i think most are magnatized, at least plugs on differentials in equipment etc (LOL @ comparasin between heavy farm equip and sleds) are, so id think dipsticks would be too.....
