2002 RC51 No Spark after it was Dropped twice

Hopefully someone in here knows what can be wrong with my bike,

The bike was dropped in front of my apartment twice by an unknown person, so I decide to ride it to the bike shop to get the bent Throttle fix but on the way there it stopped working on me.

Couldn't get it to start again, so we towed it to the Shop and they think it's an electrical issue. Parts have being replaced (Rear wire harness, tip sensor) but they can't figure out what could have gotten wrong.

They can't get a spark to start the bike.

Does this sound familiar to any of you?
Do you have any idea of what could have happened?
Thank you in advance.

Jimmy.

Kill switch might have been damaged?

Could be at least a few things. Use a service manual... the troubleshooting sections.

Does the fuel pump prime when you turn the key on?

No spark? Electrical problem?
No shit Sherlock!
Take the bike off the comedian's you've got it with & get it to a decent shop.
A good dealer should pinpoint the problem in a couple of hours tops & will probably save you cash in the long term.

It winds me up when I hear about shops swapping stuff hoping things will just start working. The customers paying for these clowns.

Get it started yet?
Any codes?
I'm thinking along the lines that Wingnutt is: did the tailsection on either side take a hit? right side is the CDI box and left side is the reg/rec and starter relay and fuse. You didn't say if the bike is cranking over, but I guess it is since you say no spark?

I'm thinking the tip over sensor didn't reset....
