What to do Butterfly removal problem

So I am removing the secondary butterlies on my 07 and in the process 3 of the screws are jacked. Thats where the bad decision making started! I decided I've come too far to put it back together so I used an EZ out and pulled the 3 screws out. In the process of course there are small metal shavings and dust and while I got most of it, I wasn't able to get all of it so I'm sure some small dust got through the primary throttle bodies, in fact I know some did because I opened them to make sure I got it all and had to use my magnetic screw driver to pull some metal shavings out. Whatever did get in was a small amount of dust/very small particles, what should i do now?

Id go in with a really good magnet and spend some serious time cleaning them out and making sure I got them all. But I hear ya, some of them screws are tough

I would do this and then change the oil again after 500 miles. Also add a magnetic drain plug.

You can try sucking it out with a vacuum cleaner, either with tb's on or off. Or swabbing down in the intake tract with a paper towel with carb cleaner on it (helps pick up the dirt and cleans). Hopefully the valves were closed on the intake side otherwise it could be in the cylinder. If you want to get crazy you can always pull the head. If it's just some small dust don't worry about it will blow out the exhaust. It's not going to cause catastrophic failure. Dust and dirt in the cylinder will just wear down the cylinder walls more quickly. The key there is wear not bounce around forever beating everything to hell.

Well I am going to do the oil change also but this went into the intake, will it damage the pistons/cylinders/rings? I'm concerned about running it. I used a pretty good magnet and pulled everything I could get to with it.

whatever particles are in there are not going to get past the rings into the bottom end. They will get blown out the exhaust on the first ignition.

Dude, I just did the same exact thing today. Luckily I only had to drill out 1 screw.
I just lined the throttle body with painters tape.
Once done, I blew it out, carefully removed tape, and I was good to go.

Strictly for my Ninjas

Hate to hear that.

I posted it somewhere deep inside the "other" thread, set a good magnet on the primary flies! Those screws are very soft.

Better to take the TB's out and clean them. You will also have more room for the to clean the ports of the head.
