Today is the first day it has not rained in southern California in a week, so i decided to take my bike out. When I was slowing to make a turn my bike skidded. So i panic in fear of hitting the curb of other motorist. I slammed the brakes and turned, skidding and falling in the process. I damaged my taillight and engine makes a buzzing sound. Any ideas, advice, help on the problem.

Unless you tweeked your engine side covers in the fall, it's very likely that you loosened something else up in the fall and it's resonating, rather than your motor. Check your subframe to see if it's tweeked and make sure your airbox, fender, skidplate, exhaust and plastic are firmly attached and aren't buzzing on the frame somewhere, etc. Press down on the tank and various parts while you're riding and see if you can isolate the noise.

My fall resulted in busting pieces loose inside of what was a pretty rusty muffler. I wound up buying a good used OEM replacement muffler via Ebay and junked the old one.

Thanks guy but I'm not sure what it could be. The engine won't start at all, blinkers don't work, and my headlight is really low.
