i was hit by a piece of wood yesterday while traveling home to my aparptment. as it flung under the tire from a van it smashed the left side, underside, and scratched the right side and hit my foot. immediately after the service light on the cluster blinked on off on off. it then went away for a bit. i pulled over to see what the hell i hit and removed it from my plastics. the bike would bog out or start up and die. i finally got it to start. while trying to finish my ride the service light would blink in the same manor as before.... on off on off. with each time it turned on, the bike would violently jerk. it felt like the fuel was cut off and then released with each blink. as i got 3 blocks away from home the bike died out at a light. pushed it the rest of the way with a few people cracking jokes as i passed them. when i got to my garage i noticed i was a bit low on gas so i filled it up with a gas can. let the bike sit while i tried to cool off (gf took care of me hehehe) and went back to the bike to head to my other house. go back on the park way and after about 15 miles the service light starts blinking again still jerking me with every flash. get off at the next exit to turn the bike around. im at a light slowing down and i get a jerk that made me open throttle and do my first 12-o-clock wheelie. i eventually got back to my apartment with a few more blinking lights along the way. anyone have any insight????? here a link to my crash boom bang thread from the hit if u care to know what happened http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=149327 and here are pictures of the bike from when i got back to my apt:

hopefully its nothing big . but its glad that ur okay mang . as for ur bike . i would first take
down the plastic . and give it a good visual inspection . looks for any kinds exhaust leak , look for any kinds of wiring damages . just check it out .

light just stays solid red when i do what you suggested ocxgg. either that or nothing will come up.

i took it out for another ride. stalled out twice. i did however notice that when i pulled in my garage the cooling fans on the radiator were spinning extremely hard. the temp was 220*f while i was riding. i am assuming that somehting in the cooling system was knocked hard when i got hit.

any advice on what/how i should further diagnose?

Well i do believe the fan starts to kick on at 220. I think my 07 normally runs 170-190ish while driving(depending on temp outside) and if sitting at lights getting to 220 happens often then i hear fans and feel the heat on my legs LOL.

the bike wasnt running in my garage, just left the key on.

i assume its stalling to prevent it from overheating?
