Not sure what the drop sensor is but is the safety switch on the side stand stuck.Pull the side stand up and down a few times check the switch also put bike in netural and in gear and back in netural a few times. Good luck.

Most fuel injected vehicles have a sensor that cuts off the fuel pump in the case of an accident. The designs and operations have changed over the years.

This is all I could find for a BMW M/C https://www.ascycles.com/detail.aspx?ID=48441

It sounds like this one has to be replaced if tripped by a dealer so it can be programmed.
