My 2016 ktm sxf 250 cut out on me at the weekend, before i take it to a shop i fort i would take a look at it myself to see if it was anything obvious! Anyway took the rocker cover off and found thay the cam chain has snapped or come off! What damage will this have caused to the rest of the engine?

It could have done a lot of damage if a valve has made contact with the piston or if you are very lucky, almost no damage. You will not know for sure until you take it apart.
