Hi all. I have an '86 450.

Yesterday, I dropped my bike at a very slow speed... I was just pulling out of a parking space and flubbed a turn. Stupid, really. I wasn't even on the road yet.

In any case, I must have knocked something loose... because about three blocks away, the bike started sputtering like it wasn't getting enough fuel (or air?)... then it stalled... I got it started again, but at super low rpms... then I couldn't get it started again after that.

Any ideas? If this is something I can fix myself — I figure it's gotta be a small issue — I'd rather not tow the damn thing to a shop...

(PS, no liquid came out that I could see)

What brand of bike is this? Some have a vacuum line which triggers the petcock. That could have come off. Are the plugs oil fouled? Fluids can enter the combustion chamber sometimes.
