Question need helps

My name is Andy and I owe a CBR1000RR 2008. There is a question about my bike that i need your help.

Last month on a ride trip, a biker rode his bike in front of me and accelerated and i was behind him in short distance. As his accelerated and I accelerated as well, suddenly he stopped and i was behind him so i braked both brakes. My bike slipped to the right side and crashed the bike's head and the fuel tank had been crushed. But from the suspension to the end of the bike is ok.

So i have bought new and second hand part to replace such as meter, handle bar left right, stay a cowl (upper), head light, clutch cable, lever left right, grip left and grip assy throttle, back mirror, (frond fender, shelter set and rear fender) and cable connect (headlight, meter, tip sensor, signal light, horn and engine don't know what i calls).

After i replaced all the parts, the bike looked as normal. But after few days ride, i experienced two problems that don't know why.

The first problem is when i stopped at the intersection the bike is shut down, i could not start engine right away. I had to press power button a few times and even turned off the key and switch the engine stop to start the bike.

The second problem is when i accelerated fast and released grip throttle for the bike slow down. That moment the bike shut down as well and i had to press power button a few times and even turned off the key and switch the engine stop to start the bike.

Now i cannot start my bike at all because the cable jack that plug into the meter is malfuction. After the crashed the jack have been crush to broken so it does not fit correctly to the meter. I'm buying new cable to replace but the two problems above is way important.

Anyone experiences these problems, please give me advice how to fix it. Thank you

I appreciate your helps

so you were driving too fast, could not stop.
crashed your bike, attempted to repair it with used parts and it is not functioning properly...

seems that you obviously missed something on the repairs, or you overlooked some damaged parts from the accident. that or you did not repair the damaged parts properly.

if the connector to the gauge cluster was damaged you need to source a new one and replace the broken one. if the electronics are not connected correctly, that would by my first guess as to what is causing your issues. all it takes is one wire misconnected to give you problems.

Not sure about the problems your having now but from the original wreck it may have been caused by only 1 caliper grabbing and pulling the bike in that direction. I've had that happen on dirtbikes. If you haven't looked into that already you might want to check it before it happens again. Just a thought.

Sounds like something else is broke, or one of the used parts were faulty. Has happened to me before. Best you have a good shop look at it. Better safe than sorry.

since both calipers are on the same wheel, having only one caliper grab will not cause the bike to turn. Otherwise, all one caliper bikes would have this issue. Ninja 250 has a single caliper up front, for example.

one caliper pulling the bike in that direction?

err correct me if i am wrong but i say BS

there are many bikes with a single sided disc set up

if it were a car and only one brake was working between the two front brakes i would say, ok. but not sure i believe that is the case here.

I think there is no problem with the cam sensor because i had checked. The case still look as normal and fine. Without it on the bike, the bike still doing the same thing. I hope it's the front sub harness that i buy new to replace....

Tip over sensor could be sticking?? How about a kill switch on clutch that could be shorting out/sticking? Or on/off switch could be dirty/shorting out. Take it all apart and inspect/clean. Obviously molex connector that smashed needs to be fixed, but it could be the other things. Lots of variables here.
