Changed the oil on my 2007 GT1000 for about the 20th time in its life, and this little cotter pin came out with the magnetic drainplug. It's about 3cms long and 32 gauge --shown in the pic beside a British 2p coin and a Canadian quarter (same as a US quarter but for the moose). I've looked through the parts handbook without seeing anything like it. Could someone who's built a DS1000 motor tell me whether it's a Ducati part or a foreign body? The bike has 58,000 trouble-free kms on it, and has never been opened except for valve adjustments.
