Hello All,
I just dropped a small rubber/metal piece down into my engine. ('71 CB350) I was replacing the pistons and as I was putting the cylinders back on the piece holding the chain tensioner came up a bit and the rubber pieces sitting on top of the pin dropped down below the pistons. Has anyone ever had this happen or does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get it out. Thanks a ton.

one member reported success pouring oil down to flush it out. i suppose you can also try taking the cylinders off and shaking it upsidedown

One more thing, take the right side cover off. That will give you some access to the bottom end.

Those Rubber Buffer parts have a small piece of Steel embedded in them.
You can fish them out with a magnet - Been there and done just that.
