Default wrecked f4i, now it wont start

was stunting the f4i, and fell off of a crucifix. it then preceeded to hit a guardrail headon at 30 and fall hard on its right side. i now cant get the fuel pump to come on when the keys turned on. things ive checked: it turns over, kill switch seems to be in working order, tilt switch seems to be ok. dont really know where to go from here or if im missing something. any inout would be appreciated.

oh and if anyone has any front forks or where to get them, id appreciate it.

I think its your tip sensor check and make sure its still hooked up.Try turning to key on and off a couple of times with kill switch off then turn it on that resets it tip sensor and long as it still upright.

If you want to bypass did you do it likethis.its simple cut all 3 wires keep track of which are on the outside splice those then leave the middle 1 alone (i THINK the middle wire is white) just CONNECT THE TWO OUTSIDE WIRES AND TEST TURN KEY ON THEN FLIP THE RED SWITCH IT SHOULD WORK LIKE NORMAL.


*****IMPORTANT*****

CUT AFTER THE BLACK CONNECTOR THERE SHOULD BE ABOUT 5 INCHES OF WIRE FROM THE CONNECTOR TO THE TIP SENSOR THATS WHERE THE CUT SHOULD BE

No fuel pump pumping. Maybe a fuse? Maybe the kickstand switch? Maybe something broke that you didn't expect like the neutral switch thing somewhere that tells the bike when to start. I am clueless.
