2010 crank bearing failure?

So I was out for a ride yesterday and getting about 50 miles from home , I started getting this intermittent engine noise that I could feel right through the foot pegs. Above 2,000 rpm everything was normal. I rode the 50 miles back home . When idling it makes an intermittent growl from deep inside. Drained the oil tonight and found a few small metal flakes . Pulled out the screen and it was pretty clean. 30,000+ miles. I think it's another 1200 main bearing failure.

Care to share your oils and intervals? (not that it's the reason, just curious)

bought the bike used with about 15,000 miles of which several were ridden in the dirt . . . Bike had a service completed by a local dealer before I bought it. Do not recall what oil was used as I gave all paper work to the buyer of bike in pieces. Personally I did one oil change and used Amsoil at about 22,000. Main bearing failed at about 33,500. Have pics to prove it

Ouch, that sucks! Is this a bad batch of bearings? There was also this problem on the 2002 ST4S

Lucky me. I also have an 02 ST4S with about 34,000 miles . Most of the ST's at least make it to 50,000 miles.
