I've dropped my airbox mount screws before but they always land in the airbox or on the secondary throttle bodies which are closed. . . My lil antenna style magnet (retractable) works like a charm

By the way there is also chain and brake on rear, included in a rear tire change is chain adjustment, clean and lube. I can tell you for a FACT with what we pay our tecs we are not making money hand over fist. It takes AT LEAST 45 min to change a rear tire, and that is if everything goes right.
my response is BULLSHIT! if it takes your shop 45 mins to change a tire then somone is strokin it BIG time I've never had my axel nut or pinch bolts not retightened, as far as having them do other work read the post it ain't happening chief. I said I can fix it faster and cheaper, you guys use a shop time manual for alot of jobs to charge the customer same as every other stealership, not callin the kettle black here just stating a fact, if you don't like that then you can go find you a corner and you asswhipes do it over what I charge when your A/C doesn't work like I'm tryin to rip you off, I stopped using a flat rate book years ago because I charge less and get it done faster than what the flate rate book says and always pass that on, stealerships don't if the shop rate manual says it takes 3 hours to change an air filter but your tech has it down to a 20 min deal you still charge the 3 hours so well hmmmmm

I'm all for plugging it... I've ridden thousands on a good mushroom plug... BUT front tires a little iffy. I'd only ride on it as long as it takes to get a new one. After all its a bit more important when you are riding and braking than the rear to me.
