06 GXR 600- ECU Problem?

So I have an interesting story. I've been doing some work on the bike and figured while I was at it, I'd tackle this under-tail piece (plastic, under the rear sub-frame) that'd been loose since I got the bike. I could see where the guy before me had drilled through a nearby piece of plastic, just behind the battery box, and held the two pieces together with a cable tie. That hole was no good, though, so I figured I'd just drill a couple of holes nearby, run a new cable tie, and that'd hold it on. Long story short..........I think I drilled through my ECU. I took the battery out, drilled my holes, which you may or may not be able to see in the pic, put the battery back in, and the thing won't start. No noise of any kind from the fuel pump like usual. It'll crank forever, but there's no fuel getting there, I don't think. Checked the nearby fuses- lights, ignition, fuel, fan, and they're all good. Also raised up the tank and checked the electrical connection to the fuel pump- also good. Just wondering what my next step is at this point.

1. Did I for sure ruin the ECU? Anything else I might've hit, or any way to tell for sure if this is the problem?

And 2. If so, what's the cheapest, reliable way to get a new one? I'm seeing them all over ebay, of course, but can I trust one of these? Or anybody happen to have one lying around?

Looks like I might've learned an important lesson on this one, guys= know what you're drilling into

pull the ecu and see if there are holes in it. Its also possible you hit a wire. Best bet is to pull the battery, ecu, and anything else in the immediate area and inspect everything for damage.

Here's your problem

I think I found the problem. Most expensive 2 little holes I've ever drilled... Won't make that mistake again.

Running great!

Replaced the ECU, and all is good with the GSXR once again. Thanks to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and Manuel at J&M Cycles for helping me out
