Re: Hit a bump, R1100RS won't run

'01 R1100RS, ~51K miles.  The shocks need replacing and I haven't
gotten to this, so the ride is harsh on bumpy roads.  I hit a large
pothole, hard, at 20 MPH.  Both the temp. and fuel gauges on the RID
immediately maxxed out at full bars and the engine died.  Couldn't
restart it, and had to push it home (fortunately only about a mile).

When I turn the ignition key to on, I don't hear any short mechanical
buzzing (which is the fuel pump, right?), and the RID maxxes out the
temp. and fuel (clock still displays correct time).  Starter,
headlight/turn signals and warning lights all continue to function.

Any ideas on where to begin looking?

  Lift the fuel tank and check the 5-pin connector on the right side.
It passes all the power to your fuel pump and signals to the fuel
gauge and low fuel indicator.
