Frosty, Sounds like your bike is blowing chunks! Are you sure it is not a case of screen degradation? Optimistically maybe a good peice of carbon was spat out. Otherwise I'd be guessing it was a part of the valve train. :)

Does the bike still run properly?

It wasn't a piece of white plastic, was it?

No, not white plastic, as far as I know. Only saw the exit wound, not the bullet. I tend to think Fershy was right, maybe some carbon buildup decided to let go, or the screen was weak (it is two years old, after all). The bike is running GREAT right now.
