Question I dropped a 1/4" drive swivel

Hello, so if there are any bike mechanics in the hizzy, I have dropped a tool in this mysterious hole on top of my main case. I am in Korea therefore my full accoutrement of tools is locked away somewhere in the Continental U.S. I have ordered a telescoping magnet in hopes that I can retrieve this. However, here is some pictures of the hole it's a 2015 Sportster Iron 883 and the hole is just south of the aft exhaust port in the cylinder. My question is, is this a dead issue, will this fall out on the street, or is this a closed chamber where my tool is safely stored for now? Thanks in advance if anybody knows stuff.

I can't speak for the bike itself, but if you wait until it's dark and stick a thin flashlight(Swivel mounted works well) into the hole you can look for light at other vantage points to verify whether it has a possibility of dropping out or not.
