Bike Won't Idle

This is on a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250.
Hey guys, I'm having a slight problem with my bike idling. Yesterday night, a friend was riding it and tipped it over lightly from a stand still. I didn't think much of it, it stuttered to start a little and ran fine after. I rode it home and everything was fine, idled fine at the lights.

This afternoon, I tried to start the bike up, and it wouldn't start easy. I had to give it gas to get it to start and after that it would idle for a little bit, the slowly die. I rode it for a couple of rounds and came back, it ran fine with a little stutter. I tried to let the bike idle and it idled a little while longer (maybe 10-15 seconds) and it died again.

Any suggestions?

First track the damage from the fall. Seems unlikely but pull the fairing and see if it messed anything up. After you can eliminate that go to the usual won't idle checklist of things to do.

There's probably a bit of oil in the airbox from the tip over.
Theres a hose that runs down from the airbox to under the bike that has a plug in it.
Pull the plug to drain the box.
Also remove the filter and see if it's oil soaked.
If it is you can either clean or replace it.
That should take care of your problem.

Okay, so I had to ride it again yesterday and after that ride it fixed itself. It idles rock solid now, that's pretty sweet. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check the air filter just to make sure everything's in order.
