Was checking my valves on my bike and a little piece of yamabond fell down into the motor.... It can't do any damage correct? A guy told me it could cause damage... Which I think is WRONG. Its just going to get caught in the oil filter.. Correct?

Could block oil passages.

If you're talking about a small bead of the silicon-like Yama-bond, it shouldn't be an issue. It's generally too soft to hurt anything it might get fed through, and will more than likely get hung up on the oil strainer in the sump.
