Pin found at drain plug 1986 xl350r

Not sure which forum to ask but I need some help identifying. Bike runs fine. Head rebuilt about 30 hrs ago. This pin and a small washer too big to drop out. This is the Canadian model same as 84,85 xl350r. Pin is about 1 inch x 1/8


Will check the decompressor. Could be the dowel

yep looks like the decompressor stop pin

haha. At last years inspection it probably loosely dropped down the chain galley as I lifted cam cover. If I saw the empty hole I would suspect it was an oil passage for decompressor. 😱

repair is done 👍

youre lucky it made its way to the drain plug - could have been catastrophic
