ok so my lifters we knockin so i pulled of the inspection plate to adjust the valves and one of the adjustment screw and lock nut vanished found the knocking problem. so i i pulled off the clutch cover and pulled out the oil screen and poof the they both were with the addition of some alluminum. other than the rocker arm knocking the bike runs fine with no apperent problems so i wondering what a screw and a nut can hit on the way down through the cam chain and then on down to the oil pan thanks fo any info

You are going to find metal fragments in the screen, that's what it's for!

What it's from I am not sure. When was the last time you checked the screen?
