While draining my oil I found this...

Any idea what it could be from? The pan was clean and empty before I placed it under the bike. I don't know if its a piece of the chain or not.

09 R6.

I honestly have no idea. I didn't even start the bike til the oil was changed, I had it on the stands the whole time.

yes it's a big deal if you leave it off. it's what keeps your master link in place. start another thread looking for another master link be it clip or press. someone at the track tomorrow is bound to have a rivet tool...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest, without judgment or anything like that, if you're going to ride track, you really really want to take a basic maintenance class. This so you can at least once-over your bike before you ride it, for safety's sake. Really, it could save your life.

It looks to me like my chains master link was pressed together. I see a link with two different rivets from the rest of the links, I tried to take it out, but its not going anywhere.. I had my OEM chain replaced by Motorcycles Unlimited to a 520 chain, could this broken clip be from my old chain and somehow got into my oil pan?

there is no way in that would have gotten into your oil pan. you need to have someone tomorrow look at your chain(someone that knows what to look for) before you ride it. it could have been lurking in an engine crevasse and slipped out while you were changing the oil. but the real question at hand is whether it is off your current chain or a past chain.

forgive my ignorance, it is a 520 chain and I do need a clip. Ignore my previous statement.
