The prefilter fell apart and went down the funnel on the air box on a 1997 ski-doo touring le

The filter sitting on the air box disintegrated and went down into the air box. Do I need to be worried about this and should I remove the airbox and clean the tiny particles out?

I would remove all particles
and replace the filter
if it is a foam filter i would not worry to much and see what happens
there is a good chance they will be blown out the exhaust
if it was a metal filter
i would take out the spark plug and get a long reach telescopic magnet
and go all over your pistons with it to remove all metal fragments with it
hopefully that should be ok
or its a top end strip at least

How is the belt? If belt is wore it will tach more. Maybe your driven pulley is not expanding properly, which lets the belt fall down into it changing gear ratio.
