Just chaincase, could be the thimble off your clutch, in that case it might be a simple case of replacing it.

It really does look like it is part of the duplex drive chain.

You should thoroughly inspect inside for more debris as well as check the existing chain.

If it has a Rolon chain fitted, do not use it again, would be my strong advice.
