Horrible experience.
 
I opened my hood to change my oil and my K&N filter was laying in the box not connected to the hose, I have no idea how long it has been off since its been about 2 weeks since I opened the hood. I hope the engine is OK. What should I do? It seems to run OK, im hoping it didnt take a lot of dirt in. Am I screwed?

i would buy some cheap oil and change it once or twice rather short miles. maybe 2 times in 2 weeks or something.

you'll be fine. i rana harley for 40,000 miles with an open stack. may have lasted to 80 if I had a filter.

Did you notice any performance increase driving like that?? :lol: j/k
Treacherous clamps!! You gotta tighten them as much as you can.....and then some.
But I think you'll be ok. I also imagine you got some snow where you live. So there's not so much dust in the air.
Do as Rob said and do 2 quick oil changes and it'll be fine :D
Good luck!
