It looks like a valve keeper to me. You must have a sticking valve or you over reved the engine. You may have a broken valve spring.
Bare

You can't over-rev one - the rev limiter is at 5400rpm's or so ..... and if it would have dropped a keeper out - it would have dropped the valve .... such is the design of the keepers and valve stem .....
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

Did the mystery bits ever get identified?  The suspense is killing me.

Yes, please! Love a good mystery. Personally, I think it was one of your buddies getting you back for squirting oil under his bike or filling up his tank when he was looking. That or faeries.  ::)

I think that WillW said that dealership thought was part of the sprag clutch? Hope all is well and you up and running again.
