Weird... The only plastic I can think of in that motor would be timing chain guides but if your that far in it should be obvious. And I think those are black...

Maybe someone broke a piece of funnel off during oil change?

Luckily this thread will migrate to the yz forum where you'll get your answer....

There is a "white" plastic spring guide on the starter shaft assembly.  That's all I can think of at the moment.
