Lost a screw... ( Fished it out )

So, I was about to change air filter and I forgot to cover those 4 holes, doh :(
I unscrewed one screw that holds air filter and I think it slipped into on of thoes 4 holes.

How can I get that little bugger if it went down the tube?
Was thinking with some magnet on a thread or...?

I supose that screw can do some damage to machine if I don't get it out...

Go to your local auto parts store and pick up an expandable magnet.

If you didnt crack open the throttle it should be sitting up o top of the butterflys and a little magnet on a stick should do the trick. If you did open the throttle and it went in....get it out. It will destroy your engine, or at least break a piston or valve or both, proly bend a rod too.

if you dont want to spend the money, just get a long stick of some sort and tape some duct tape on the end so the sticky side is facing out. get a flashlight and go fishing, worked for me in the past

I wouldn't do that in his case. If he pushes too hard with the tape, he could open the butterfly and the screw could fall in.
