Bike tipped over, now won't start

So my boy who is not on here forgot to put the kickstand down and let the bike go. He was able to catch it but it still hit the ground, not hard he kinda just laid it down since it was too heavy for him. So now the bike doesn't start. All the electronics work, headlights are on, kill switch and all are ok but it wont start. It does crack up but doesn't fully turn on. Any ideas?

you may have to tap on the BAS a couple times with it straight up and down to reset it. Im not sure if it is common but mine sticks

WTB:
- Full set of race bodywork
- GP style windscreen (double bubble ok if cheap)
- Midpipe for Devil Rocket

I'm gonna tell him to try that. Thanks for the help guys. Yeah I thought it could be flooded. I am not at his house right now but after work I will try that and see what happens

Does the engine spin or no? Not fully engaged would mean the starter motor isn't spinning the crank.

It spins, fuel pump starts as well but nothing else happens after that. He did mention that his clock somehow reset itself back to 12:00

It isnt the key you need to cycle, its the kill switch.
turn it off then back on and it will work. (assuming its just the BAS thats tripped)

Check that all of the fuses are good and nothing seems undamaged. Sounds like some wires got knocked about.

Is it really possible that a fuel injected engine would get flooded from tipping, esp. for a couple of seconds?

+1 on fuses, I feel like a tripped BAS would keep it from turning at all.

i think he means it cranks, (spins) but 'not fully engaged' must mean it does not fire off.

Might be a dumb response but will rolling down a big hill and dumping the clutch start it. It worked for me when I flipped my quad and wouldn't start by switch after that it cranked perfectly

Its not your BAS, and its not your kill switch. If it were the fuel pump would not prime.

Sounds like its either flooded or you have an ignition problem. Hold it at WOT and crank it for a little while, it may take up to a minute or so.

Failing that have a look at the ignition harness and check for a spark.

Well after checking fuses, disconnecting the battery and all the stuff people here said to do, well I'll get to the fix, the battery for some reason was only shooting out 4 volts. Somehow it died even though it was not left on. We jump started it and what do you know, it worked. I still don't know how the battery drained from just a tip over

Even light impacts can damage the cells in a battery. Get the thing load tested.
