UH OH! Extra Parts?

I'm in the process of a total rebuild on a 98 WR400. I have the cases split and just took them and the right side cover to a machine shop to be cleaned.
Here is the problem: when he gave me back the case halves he gave me a small ball that might have come from somewhere in the cases. It is a steel ball about 1/4'', I'm not sure if it is from my case or something that was left over in his cleaning tank.
Is there a check valve ball somwhere? Oil pump?
Also, during re-assembly can/should I use any special assembly lube?
Thanks, I'm sure I'll be looking for more advise as I go.

Assembly grease should be used.

Someone might say this is wrong, but I've never used any assembly lube in any motor which shares is oil between the engine and the trans/clutch.
Always seemed to me to be a good way to contaminate the fiber plates and promote slippage if it were to "bite into" the plate and glaze them over. Just my $.02

I just got all brand new bearings yesterday. I will start to reassemble the motor in a few days. Can't wait!
