concern for lost part and engine damage

Edit: I didn't know you couldn't post pictures here so I'll explain it's location, it's the screw plug and o-ring to the right of the oil plug and directly up from the large screw plug in the middle of the crankcase cover.

As the engine runs a dry sump system there is virtually no oil there, just whatever oil drains back through the cam chain tunnel from the head. Oil loss would have been minimal if at all noticeable. I would advise changing the oil and checking the filter (and frame strainer to be on the safe side) ASAP just incase any forign material found it's way in there. The chance of any engine damage occouring from this is very very small. The air you can feel coming out of the hole is normal. When you plug the hole again, you will feel the same air coming out of the breather tube.
