oil filter screen

Changed the oil for the first time on my 91 vulvan 750vn and when i removed the oil filter screen it was covered in sedament. Most of it did not feel like metal, they were softer, but a few were metal. I know it can't be real good but im real worried because a small oring was also on the side of the screen. I have no idea were to even start with this. Has anybody else had this happen, or advice on how to go about handling this?

Does the sediment look like it could be rubber? Maybe your balancers are going?

It could be from the water pump as well, which was my case. If the bearings get chewed up (which could be the metal flakes mentioned above) it will expose the oil seal, with the impeller shaft now wobbly due to no bearing keeping its place it can tear apart that seal. I had rubber and metal in my oil, when I got to the dampers they were in great shape.
