Default Bike Damage Question

So long story short some idiot decided he'd take a turn on my side of the road while doing 80 and forced me into the ditch, better yet he took off. Left side of my bike is pretty bad, need new lower fairing, two new mirrors etc..

My question is there are three lines that are hanging off the bike, I know little about bikes mechanically i believe one of them is the fuel line but as it leaked gas while in the ditch but does not leak now ( think it just bled the line) have no idea what the other two are. Bike currently does not start, im sure someone on here can identify the lines. Thanks.

They are just drain tubes. I am sure if they came detatched they would not stop your bike from starting. Maybe your kickstand sensor was damaged?? One of them is from the gastank, one is from your radiator overflow, the other is from somewhere else I have not had to deal with yet.

But none of the three would prevent the bike from starting?

no they shouldn't, maybe you can get pics of the whole bike. maybe some other areas might be damaged and someone might have an idea for you

nope. as said one is gas overflow, radiator overflow, and the other is attached to the bottom of the air box I believe for drainage of any moisture that may accumulate in there,

When you say it doesnt start, what is happening? What happens with you initially turn the key on?
