I like jugs. :)

Is it visible? you can use a magnet on the end of a stick... or one of the telescoping ones you can buy at auto parts stores.

On a car I'd call it an intake manifold... but it is above the cylinders and I think I see valves. I tried a magnetic screw driver... it didnt appear to be a very strong magnet or the screw has a treatment to make it non magnetic. It was visible, than I wrestled with it and it disappeared into the dark abyss.
At which point I lost my temper, started cursing at it, gave it a swift kick against a tree, and walked back inside. Eventually I walked it back to the shed still in pieces.

well it's probably still there, so I wouldn't worry about it too much right now.... just a pain in the ass

ideas in order of easiness:

1) a telescoping magnet
2) creating some kind of snaking vacuum attachment and feeding it down there
3) flipping the bike upside down

Id like to put my 2 cents in , I work in a body shop n we have this stuff called dumb dumb (slang) Its actually called butal tape its for putting older car windsheild in. Its sticky n you can roll it into a ball put it on the end of anything the screw should stick to it n good 2 go.
Another reason I was checkin your build out is I have the same bike. Once you get your screw out n running agian without your ram air tubes hooked up you will have some running issues at high rpms & at high speed.Still tryin to work my bugs out
