Bluhduh Crushed my X Challenge Ignition...

So I had the bike in the back of the truck taking it to get a VIN inspection so I could get it plated. One of the straps shifted and bent my key in the ignition. I got the key out, but now when I try to start it it whirs/clicks and the screen blanks out and displays "1.9" and both turn indicator arrows flash. So what do I need to replace and where can I get the parts?

when the screen blank out like that its the battery. did the key get shifted to the on position thus draining the battery. otherwise is probably a short or fault in the ignition switch which killed the battery. swap the battery then you can narrow it down to switch or wire problem. you could use the old battery if you LOAD TEST FIRST. then charge if good

This is the reading my multimeter gave me before it stopped working.



But then again I don't really know how to use the thing.

I literally just changed a battery that read 12.2 volts. green lights on charger says its fully charged. .seem good. wouldnt start bike at all. clicked and dash goes out. took it to autoparts store and they tested it. as soon as a big current draw is applied it craps out. new battery no problem
