Doesn't seem like it could have been messed up if that's all that happened. If you're concerned, maybe try turning the engine via the drive sprocket to make sure nothing is binding.

Just looked through my service manual. All it is is a reduction gear. So long as it meshes with both of the necessary gears and stays put, you're good.

Probably as soon as the weather turns bad at the end of the riding season. I don't really have the money for it right now, and I don't want to put my bike out of commission anyway.
