A leaf fell into my crankcase

Take the time and get that leaf out of there. It could cost you if you dont. Just my two cents.

a gram of prevention is better than a kilo of cure!!!
You metric guys!
I don't know why, but the original "english" version with "ounce" and "pound' just rings better.

The frikin leaf seems to have vanished. I removed the ignition cover, the leaf was not there. I drained the oil and there was no sign of it it either. I flushed the crankcase with a couple of litres of cheap auto oil, still no sign.
I finally topped it up with oil, reassembled my head, started it up and went for a ride.
I gave it another oil change, still no sign.
This might have been another bonehead move. I'll let you know if my engine ever blows up.
