I just wrecked

Some mud underneath a small puddle at 40 MPH.

Minimal damage to myself and bike.

While I was picking it up it shut off and when I hit the starter button, nothing happens.

Any idea why?

Could be the tip over sensor if your bike has one, have you tried cycling the key a few times and trying again? If not try and find and loose connectors if you can.

That is my guess my kickstands got bent a little and my cluctch lever is damaged.

Thanks for the tips. Now I have a reason for those clubman bars bar end mirrors and clutch levers I've been eyeing.
