Bike won't start after warm
I am not sure if this is even in the ball park but I have a 2008 that was acting really weird similar to yours. For a time, I could start the bike fine when it was cold but when it warmed up, it would not start. It was very annoying after riding a few miles and trying to fill it with gas. I would shut it off and have to jump it.
If you put a jumper box on it, does it help?
I know you said you checked the battery but my battery seemed fine too. I even replaced it, and it started right up, but then the problem started happening again.
I will spare you all the details but I replaved the R/R. Didn't help. I took off the stator and found a wire was chaffed because when the previous owner put the Woodcraft cover on, they pinched the wire and eventually it wore through. Your tip over may have moved something and caused this to happen. I don't want to lead you down the wrong path but it may be a place to look. Check your voltage when you start it cold. 13V at idle 14.4v at higher RPMs. Also, batteries tend to gain a little after they sit so that could be why it starts cold. The bike may be using enough juice from the battery when running to make it not start after awhile. Again, try the jumper box when it is warm and if it starts, you have some voltage issue. I found the Daytona is very sensitive to voltage.
Good luck with it.
