The FI light. Put the bike on the kickstand, in neutral, and start the bike. Tell us what the series of long and short blinks are.

FI light is the orange one or red one

It's the light with "FI" on it. The check engine light might be the one that flashes on the 09's. Not sure.

update!!

so i can get the bike started which is the good news but the bad news is there are more symptoms

1. bike wont start with kickstand down, even in neutral
2. bike wont start with kick stand up in neutral either but will start up if i pull in clutch and stay on even with clutch back out after start up
3. while in neutral rpm's go down around 200 when clutch pulled in and back up when released (its not impacting anything but is noticeable
4. nuetral indicator does light up when i first turn on bike , but then that indicator as well as speedo dont work

Also i still dont know where or what the "FI" light is as i didnt see anything blinking at all

You need to have the bike running in neutral and with the kickstand down for the ECU to flash the codes on the FI light.

Have you done any recent mods to the bike?
If the bike is under warranty, have it towed to a motorcycle dealership and do not ride it anymore. Continuing to ride it will only cause more damage.

Removing the tank is a fairly simple task. There are a couple little things that need to be done that the Owners manual will break down for you. Make sure you follow step by step.. Once that is off you should have open access to the wiring system. GL.

Rats, gotta love rats. In the how-to section, there are DIY instructions for airbox mods, or changing the air filter, etc. Look those up and follow the directions, just stop when you get to the point that involves lifting the tank.

That really sucks, How in the F did they get in there?? At least you know what the issue is. Now it is just a matter of getting in there and fixing everything. GL..
