I recently instaled the grs-1 gears in my t case and took my sammi to the trail to test it out and when i changed the gear oil about 100 miles later the magnet on the drain plug was full of metal shavings. is it normal for new gears to "shed"? <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

most anytime you pull the drain plug it will have a fair amount of shaving on it the metal on metal movement of the gears together onwith chains wil cause wear..

NO, there should be nothing in your gear oil.
Some slight discoluring of the oil from anti rust treatment on the gears is normal( where used). Some slight noise when the gears bed in is normal and will go away.
Metal shavings reflect a problem. Did you fit new quality bearings? are they on straight ? Is there anything wrong with the case that would cause misalignment?
