So it finally happened

I was out for a cruise and I was coming down a hill picking up some speed so I went to slow down and my tires just started screeching and the bike lost traction and I went down.
Unfortunately it fell pretty hard and messed up quite a bit of things, still working on the cosmetic parts but the bike still turns over. Haven't tried firing it up yet though, had to Bondo the gas tank and replace a couple of things.

I'm fine I had a few scratches nothing severe. It kinda drug me a bit, if it didn't i wouldn't of had much done.
I think the engine might need to be worked on, it turns over but won't start.

I'm glad you're not too banged up. My first guess is that there is something simple wrong that's causing the engine not to start. Maybe it's flooded, or maybe a wire got knocked off of something.

Well I let it sit for a month before trying to start it at all. I cleaned the carbs and replaced everything that was broken or messed up. I took every thing off except the engine and nothing seemed messed up that I didn't already replace. I replaced left handlebar/controls, clutch sensor, peg, centerstand, and new Spark plugs. It is getting gas to plugs, battery is not dead.

You should be able to determine if it has spark and if fuel is getting into the cylinders. I can't imagine an internal engine problem if there is no visible damage to it.

Betting on a wire that's not connected right or something electrical (switch), but let us know what you find.

Sorry you crashed. Glad you're (mostly) ok (crashing is never fun). I hope you figure out what's wrong so you can ride again soon.
