These are pictures of a 2006 honda crf 250 right side case half. In the kick starter mechanism housing, there is a small piece of aluminum that bridges across a hole in the case. It broke off, and im wondering if anybody else has seen this before, and will it be an issue? I dont think it serves a purpose, but i would like a second opinion.

did you get the broken piece out or did it fall into the transmission? I dont know if that "bridge" has a purpose but my guess is that you would be ok running it that way.

I actually bought this bike as a project, the engine was completely disassembled and kind of just thrown in a box with no sign of that piece anywhere

EDIT - Ya just saw this and yes you need to make sure the broken piece is not in side the motor.

Not sure way that happened (incorrect kick starter install?)

IMO I would pull the motor and split the cases and try and figure out what caused it when re-assembling and you could most likely re-use the inner case with the piece missing BUT maybe someone with more experience will clarify.

FYI - Installing the kick start assembly in my experience is tricky

The cases are split, the bike is getting a new bottom end anyway. Im planning to re use the case i think

My '05 is the same way, can't see it being a reason for new case half or repair. I say run it.
