On the way to work I noticed my little air duct screen thing fell off. How important is that thing. Should I be worried I'm gonna suck up a big bug or something?

do big bugs hit your windscreen?

i mean an air filter is in there for a reason, the screen is to just help with rocks and larger stuff like angry people throwing hot dogs at you.

Better replace the screen then, I don't think BMC's or K&N's warranty's cover high velocity hotdogs...

lmao.. I can picture 3 or 4 butterflies laying perfectly in symmetry on top your filter, just to make sure that you run lean.

Oh and as for the screen, you can see a ton of street fighter 7r's who don't even run the air ducts...
