Hi.
Have never owned a bike before and have recently
purchased a 75 cb200. Original bike with only 3000km's on the clock.
This bike starts and runs pretty well, the problem that I have is that I removed the valve cap to set the gap and while putting it back on I over tightened it and broke the the cap.
Now the problem is there MIGHT be some of the Brocken cap in the vale housing, I have all of it except I cant find one very tiny piece of the thread.
When I say tiny I do mean tiny, around 1mm x 1mm
My question is what do I do now?
Will this damage the bike if I start it?
Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.
A picture of the 'damage' would help us help you.

There's not really anything to show, just wanting to know what damage can be caused by a small piece of aluminium falling into where the valve/tappits are.
This piece would be small, just a part of the thread of the broken cap. See the first and second photo, centre of shot.
