Bike will not start 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6

I was forced to lay my bike down a few weeks ago on the left hand side if sitting on it , which is also the clutch side. I've reset the lean angle sensor and replaced the fuel along with starter solenoid and several relays but it still will not start. However it will start if I spray a little starter fluid into the intake but will only run for however long i spray starter fluid. The starter solenoid still pops pretty loud when I hit the start button and there is a loud whining sound coming from what I believe is the throttle position sensor because when I move the throttle the whining noise changes pitch. But when the bike cranks off of the starter fluid it sounds wonderful no noises can be heard and it purrs like a kitten. I'm stumped and all out of options other to bring to a mechanic which i cannot afford at this timer so any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank You in advance for any light you can shine on my situation.
