So with engine rotated forward attempting to install shim on right front exhaust valve if looking at the bike 2xs it fell at front of motor third time it fell idk where not physically possible to fall in spark plug whole the way I was doing it and very far fetched for to get cam gear side and I'm lost my garage is a bit out of order but I've been around it with a magnet but it could have made it to the drain
Anyone else have this issue where to look in motor ???

Where exactly did you find the shim?
You wanted to ask us.
Now you have the opportunity to let us know.

The shim was next to the bolt that holds the head down underneath the cam cam gear the only way I caught it was the numbers on the shim I super glued a rare earth magnet to my feeler gauge and got with in an inch of it and it popped out
