I am changing out top end and managed to drop a circlip down the cooling port.
How do I go about getting it out?? Photo

I'd probably pull the motor and stuff some rags in the crankcase so it doesn't fall in there and try turning it upside down and shake it out or even use an air nozzle to try and blow it out

Good deal! We did top end on my son's 125 last weekend and this exact scenario crossed my mind for some odd reason. I always stuff the opening to the crank case but I thought about the water ports. Glad it worked out for u.
