I was Yutaka for a ride the other day and white a pretty good size pot hole, After my bike didn't sound the same and didn't have any pick up? Then as soon as I let off the gas my bike stopped I pulled over and could see any thing visibly wrong but I'm not mechanic. Long story short my bike won't idel.
Please help

Is it possible that hitting the pothole jarred something loose? The main fuse is subject to failure which would mean no electric power. Do you have an inline fuel filter? Possibly sediment from the fuel tank entered the carbs?

Might want to check and see if you're firing on both cylinders.
And then check the bike. :p Sorry, had to.

A bike on one lung will sound different, won't idle, runs gutless and will stall when you roll off the gas.
So a good sharp shock might have dislodged a HT wire or a coil wire, or even allowed debris to shift and block one of the jets.
