Aboot two weeks ago i hit a gravel patch and fell on my right side, managed to get back up, start again and go no problem and the bike has had no issues till just this weekend, ive been trying to get it to turn over and it just wont.

Ive changed the battery, ive changed my plugs, im a new bike owner so im very unsure of what to check. When i try to turn over the crank spins and it tries to go but its almost like theres no ignition, it coughs once or twice when i have the choke on and than nothing, i tried some quick start spray and still nothing, maybe i didnt put enough but ive heard nightmare stories aboot that stuff. Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome.

It is important to describe the problem properly.
If "the crank spins", then it IS "turning over"........but not firing. Two entirely different situations.

Sounds to me like you aren't getting any spark. Have you checked that ??

Starter fluid is best used with the intake and air cleaner in place. That helps with getting the right amount into the engine.
