First check the switch on your side stand. A wire might have come off.
I'd be checking all the connectors you can, and the fuses.
Maybe a wire popped off you coils.
Check your leads to the spark plugs.
Make sure everything is tight on the battery terminals.
Hopefully someone else will chime in with more tips.
Good luck mate.

Ok guys lets try this again. it was very foggy, it was a man hole cover that dropped about 2 inches lowerthan the pavement. i ran over it at about 40 but the bikes suspension really bottomed out really hard. instantly the bike was like running on 2 cylinders misfiring and backfiring for about 2 blocks the second i pulled over and pulled the clutch it died and didnt start again. needless to say AAA sucked ass they took 5.5 hours to pickme up and flatbed the bike home. how do i reset the tilt sensor? idk whatelse to check. i know now how to go in DIAG mode. then what? what am i looking for? alll the codes have numbers but 2 of them. #20, and#21, the both say ON. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? What ami missing????
To start with you can disconnect the battery for a hard reset. Give it 10min and try starting it. Find what the codes mean and go to those sensors and check their connections. During the impact a sensor might have disconnected or got broken.
