Magnetic wand might get it.

Yes it will eventually damage your clutch/flywheel/starter. A hard turn or bump will knock it loose and into the moving parts. You have to get it out.

You may have to take the clutch fork out to get a better angle at it. Pop the clutch fork grommet first before pulling the whole fork, and see if you can get it that way. If you can't you'll have to separate the tranny/block.

theres a dust shield, it wont get you past the flywheel, but maybe you'll be able to see where the bolt landed to try to snag it from above with a magnetic wand or one of those claw gripper things

Harbor freight sells a knock off color screen boroscope for $90. Google harbor freight coupons and print out a 20% off coupon and get it for like 77 after tax. It works real nice but it will not fit in spark plug hole
