Today I replaced engine oil on my GTS150 3v but I found some piece of plastics stuck in drain hole. I tried to take them out and make sure that itís empty. I would like to know that where it comes from? and Are there any affect on my bike?.

Yeahhhh... thatís no bueno. Looks like it could be the cam chain guide coming apart.

Service history? Mileage?

Anyway, that deserves a deeper dive and close inspection.

Ugh, yes, I agree. You might be able to tell just by removing the valve cover, but I'm pretty sure this is engine out time.

The only other thing I can think of is mayyyybbbeee the dampening from the inside of the bell from decompression assembly off the cam? But that is so left field in that it would be pulverized by the chain from the get go.

But, that looks tensioner/guide To me.

Time to start taking things apart.
