    I have dropped a few of the battery terminal screws and a fuse down there, right by the battery box, and NEVER have seen them again!
    Where does stuff go when you drop it down there?
    I have spent ALOT of time looking but have not been able to EVER find any of it??
    Please somebody tell me!! Where does it go???

    Do you have one of those telescopic magnets. A worthy cheap tool. Personally, I think motorcycle battery terminals are designed and made by evil people. But I have yet to loose any parts into the bowels of my bike yet that I have not been able to find and fish out with the magnet.

    Telescopic magnet and a decent flashlight.

    I presume some dropped parts go the same place as lost socks and 10mm sockets...

    Yeah, single socks and 10mm sockets for sure!
    I have looked very thoroughly with a really good flashlight and fished around with magnets to no avail?
    Where does it go?!!

    easy solution; just turn the bike upside down and shake... it'll fall out :)

    check to be sure it's not on the chain, which could cause damage.

    Did not see it on the chain, that would really suck!
    How would you get it out of the exhaust system down there?
    I really did want to get it upside-down ,I did shake it a lot and rolled it back and forth, nothing??
