Stick killed my LTR450

Hello guys, first post here, only have ridden the ltr450 I just picked up twice now. Second ride was after just changing sprockets; I’m cruising through the woods and a big ass stick goes right up between the A arm, under the radiator, and right against the motor. It killed the quad when that happened, I get off to check it out and there was something unplugged and laying against the exhaust which did melt the wires. I tried to find where the plug came from, there’s no female ends for it. I separated the wires and taped them to see if it would do anything without it plugged in....and nothing. It doesn’t do a damn thing when you hit the start button. The wire with the plug isn’t long enough to reach much, I have looked all over for an open female end and can’t find anything. It’s the 2 pin plug that is in the push pin mount on the radiator. Just looking for some suggestions at what I should do, I’m at a loss! Any help is greatly appreciated

I was wondering if it was even plugged into anything to begin with. I don’t see anything else misplaced or out of order, what could cause it to just not do anything? The light comes on, there’s still power. At first I was thinking maybe the battery cable came loose or something, but that’s not it either

Looks like the wires that go to the rear brake light switch above the brake pedal. Check fuses. One of the wires is a positive , it might have shorted to ground when it melted on the pipe
