Default bike went down...now it wont start. Please Help!

last week i went down on a pretty nasty turn with a lil too much gravel. Im fine, and the bike luckly had strickly cosmetic damage...all except for the fact that it wont start. When the bike went down, it kept running so i quickly ran over to it and turned it off. After that, i stood it up it would crank but no start...but i was getting power (brake lights and turns work) but the fuel pump wouldnt even engage. Now that i have the bike home it doesnt even do that. i am not even getting power when i turn the key. What are the first things i should check and trouble shoot?
Could it be the bank angle sensor....how do you reset that?
Is it a battery issue?

if it's cranking it's not a battery issue.... Does sound like a tilt sensor.... Just unhook ur battery let it chill and check out the tilt sensor make sure everything is fine. Then hook it up and see if it works then go from there

srry man just re read.... Test ur battery first thing... Second it sounds like maybe you have a bad ground... Ide check that out.... If you end up getting power back... Def check the tilt. Because that is what is keepin ur fuel pump off either that or the kill switch but I assume you are amart enoug to cover than one urself

thats what i thought...the tilt sensor. i did plug it in but is it possible that when the bike went down that the tilt sensor broke (like on the inside)? i did find the sensor disconnected from the bike and about 10ft from the crash site. haha

also, i need to replace the clutch cable, wire harness, left side turn signal assembly...what is a good site that has competative prices. ive already search ronayers.com and bikebandit.com

Bypass the BAS by hooking up the two outter wires together, on the plug that plugs into the BAS. This is a TEMPORARY fix, mostly for troubleshooting.
For the oil change, go to wal-mart, get yourself some Shell Rotella T (in the blue jug NOT the white one) and a Super tech filter #ST7317, cost ya a whopping 22 bucks instead of the 40 it'll cost for Honda crap. (I say crap cause the stuff I suggested is far superior to the OEM stuff)
