    Total blind guess here, but is it possible to get water into the gas tank? Water is heavier than gasoline, and would sink to the bottom of the frame where the pump sits. Maybe drain out current gas...

    All the above, and also:

    Most likely it's something electrical that is keeping your bike from just plain starting. Think fuses, relays, wires, grounds.

    When you say the engine won't turn, do you even hear the starter working? Can you spin the engine by hand, to make sure it's not seized?

    There may be a bunch of other things to check, but I...

    Gotta ask why it was a salvage title. These bikes don't have any big expensive fairings to crack. So no dents on the frame or exhaust pipe? Check the tabs on the steerer tube - a bend here...
