Lost Allen Wrench Inside Motorcycle. Help!

This is unbelievable- I was using a small allen wrench (2.5" long) to adjust my brake lever, it slipped and bounced somewhere around the coolant cap and went inside the engine somewhere....!!!

I looked with a flashlight as best I could and can't find the m-f'r. It's definitely not on the ground either..

Any advice on what to do? Dismantle the engine? Cross my fingers it'll be ok? Throw the bike away???

Twizz, you are a genius. I went back to give it one more go, and there it was sitting at the bottom of the radiator...
