So far as the ignition, if you have access to compressed air, blow it out real good, then spray with WD40, let soak a while, blow out, repeat. Then try turning the key back and forth and working it in and out. Sounds like you got crud in there.

Not familiar with where the tip over sensor is mounted, is it on the tank? I would try adding a couple gallons of gas, charging the battery, putting the tank down, wait a few minutes, and try again. Also check all the fuses to make sure one isn't popped. If you only have a little gas, tilting the tank up will make it flow away from the pickup at the bottom rear of the tank.

did lock smith do any thing to key cyl or ignition switch ?
to me i think problem start out from a worn key or sticking key cyl / tumbler !
or if they dont put it back right (key cyl and ignition switch) then there is problem with on/off position !!!
you might fully charged battery but batt. not holding its charge then that battery a no go / no good-need new batery.
regret that you way down south-we have few good techs and Motorcycles Unlimited up north .
you may have trail bike up here so we can help !!! keep post update situation

Sounds like you either damaged the key switch while jacking with it, so the ignition is not firing or you pulled a wire loose at the plug from the ignition switch.
Either way, check your voltage output there and start tracing it back.

^^^^What he said.

Sorry to make it overly technical.

DVOM(digital volt/ohm/meter); ETM(electronic troubleshooting manual; wiring diagram.)

The spark plug gets its power for the spark over the discharge of a secondary ignition element; for the ground it uses the case to return to the battery. So put the threads of the spark plug against a good ground.

BUT if this is foreign to you(no offense, its your choice) I'd recommend finding someone to check this and the electrical to avoid further damages/problems.

Or call Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited ^^^^^^^
