I took my 2002 VStar 1100 Classic gas cap off the other day and a small BB sized metal ball fell out of it. The cap still locks on fine but I have no idea where this ball came from or what it does. Ideas?

Wild guess:
Could be the check valve for the tank vent inside the cap.
Looks like you are missing a screw too.
Might want to visit a dealer.

You're missing a screw and a spring, they're in your tank I bet. Drain the fuel, yank the tank and shake it up. Bet you'll hear some jingles.

Get a telescoping magnet and start poking around inside the tank until you have spring and screw, reassemble with a dab of blue thread locker.
