You didn't take off the tank, did you? I'm pretty sure you didn't but just want to make sure. That was how fuel coupling on older F4s broke.

You didn't slap a Ferrari sticker on her somewhere did you? If it were a genuine Ferrari sticker the bike probably would have burst into flames.
Sorry to read about your misfortune, but glad that the fuel didn't ignite. Now hopefully you'll be riding again soon without sustaining damage.
