So a couple weeks ago I dropped my bike on the left side. I picked it up and drove it home, no issues. Then last week I went to take it out and it started but wanted to stall the more throttle I gave it. It eventually stalled out while it sat running in my driveway. I tried to start it back up, and it wouldn’t start. A day later, it started up and did the same thing. It’s also running really rich. Any ideas?

I can't come up with a solution..
adjust enricher/choke no more than 1/3 of throw to see if there is any change.. away from driver is Off btw.
turn petcock off to see if rpm increases as carb bowl runs out of fuel..
I would remove air filter, using a chopstick (cuz my fingers aren't long enough) raise and release vacuum piston to see if it's sticking..
sorry I'm really no help

Installing an in line filter before putting fuel in clean carb is a good idea. Helps ensure the carb stays clean.
