Help - metal shavings on sump plug

Did an oil change on the Brutale 1090RR the other day and felt sick. In the pic is what i found attached to the magnet on the oil sump plug. Obviously something is very wrong. The bike is running OK maybe a bit noisier so I would rather fix it now before something really gives way.

Has anyone seen anything like this before? I have resigned myself I am up for some expensive repairs but any advice on narrowing down the cause will be much appreciated.

Sorry to see that much metal..have no idea what could cause this. Maybe some of the other more experienced members may have seen this. There is always some metal shavings present, but I have never seen this much. I have 10K miles on mine. And you?

Was in the middle of a 24k service. Bike is serviced regularly. I did have it on the dyno recently and it has a rexxer map which allows it to rev out to 12000rpm. I did have to replace the cam chain tensioner because it had seized. It looked OK once i un-locked it but I replaced it anyway. I am thinking it did not like the dyno.

It was a bit noisier and may have been the clutch. I must admit I was a bit more focused on the top end due to the cam chain tensioner.

Easy enough to pull the cover and have a look though. It is as simple as it looks right? No gotchas sitting in there waiting to launch across the garage?

Are they chips or shavings?
If they're chips I'd say you've lost the hard facing off a couple a gears
