highly doubt... or better yet it wont make it to the filter before chewin up somthing or getting stuck in an oil passage!

mabye some really small long thin needlenose pliers could get it out but i wouldent start it untill its out!

and if you havent yet... cut the paper off the oil filter that was in it when you first got it and check for shavings...

You can see or get really close to the drain plug from the left case. I believe the worst that could happen it would get sucked up in you oil pickup screen. The mess in the oil pickup is a lot smaller than this piece. You should be able to take the left side off tilt the quad and clean this area with solvent to flush the piece out. Good luck.

so did you take the cover off? it should be there once u take the cover off, it doesnt have anywhere to go, it will get stuck before going into anything.
