I would imagine a little. I am assuming the pieces were large? Could they be sucked into the motor? Are they small enough for that? Also, is the material of the carb the same as the cylinder? I assume not, thus I am assuming the carb is a softer/lighter material.....
I would only concern myself with the pieces possibly blocking the carb and maybe getting into the cylinder?
Sorry I am not much more help, I am not that mechanically savvy... Ask Clarke

No, the frame drain plg is an 8mm (thread size, not bolt head size) and the engine plug is 10mm or 12mm, can't remember which...
I do not know if the frame drain plug is identical to the engine drain plug
You don't have to worry about the carb slide pieces going in here, the cylinder is sealed off from the bottom end by the rings.

How do you do a YZ426 piston on a 99WR? The 00 YZ wrist pin is a larger diameter and will not fit through the 99WR rod small end?..
Have you any info on the IMS 426 as to how well it is working out? anybody out there in forum land using the IMS 426 on a 99WR or YZ?? If yes how about some feedback.

I am clueless on the cylinder swap. Some guy on a 520KTM 4 stoker told me it was a straight forward swap. Now I know this is not the case.

Does your WR have a screen type spark arrestor? If it does, check it and the tailpipe for pieces of the throttle valve. They may not have escaped. If the pieces are big enough you could mail them to Yamaha for consideration... The Keihin manual calls this part the "vacuum release plate"
