Screw in the Oil tank/ Help!
As I was checking the oil level on my xt 600 3tb I stupidly let the screw holding the plastic cover fell in the frame's oil tank.
I'm worried the screw will get suck in somewhere in the frame starving the engine in oil , seize while I'm riding 100km/h.
If I look at the manual, the screw could either be at the bottom of the shaped oil tank or at the end of the upper tube.
I was thinking if it is in the tube I would have to put the bike upside down, to retreive it, if it is in the tank I may have to cut it , but I think also that I would contaminate the oil with steel fragment impossible to clean!
I must be the only one that did that , if anyone has a suggestion whether I should keep riding or remove the screw and how, I'd be more than happy to hear from you!!
