i was on the line to race and i tried to start my bike and it was alot harder and popping and the screw fell out i said screw it and i raced nothing happened but i was wondering could there be some major damages?
It was a five lap race that the laps were 2 mins long

It's fine. Once you're on the Main Jet, the pilot circuit doesn't do much of anything. You could possibly suck some dirt into the carb riding it that way, but lots of people lose fuelscrews while riding with no long-term effects.
