it's possible that the shift rod is touching something and preventing from fully turning the spline. look at it from all angles and make sure nothing is touching anywhere. can you bend the damaged shift rod back? The problem with a bent shit rod is that it's no longer rigid, even after you bend it back, and it will slightly bend where the damage occurred, preventing from fully turning the spline. I've run into this problem before and the only solution was replacing damaged rod. your only option may be to order the complete rearset kit again or see if that rearset was modeled after an aftermarket kit that sells here in the states, like Sato or Vortex, and see if their shift rod will fit your rearsets.

when it doesn't turn on, how does it act? does it slowly crank but doesn't turn on, or does it just make a clicking noise one time when you push the start button, or does it turn over just fine but doesn't turn on, etc?

a slow crank = weak battery. was it behaving like a weak battery or did the bike just stop coming on all of a sudden?

no crank = dead battery or something else. check the voltage to the battery to rule it out. should be over 12.4 volts. The closer to 13 volts, the better, but no more than 14 volts.

Check your kick stand switch and make sure the wires aren't ripped. It looks like a forked switch at the top of your kick stand. you sure it has gas?

Also, check your main fuse. it's a 30 amp fuse along your red battery cable.

Flip your kill switch a few times along with your key. could be your bank angle sensor is acting up from the fall. flipping the kill switch with the key on resets it.

If you do have to send it to the dealer, send it with the fairings off and the tank ready to lift up. this cuts down on their man hours.
