Welp... Fcuk my Luck

Cruising down the interstate yesterday in the middle lane. Just leaving the barbershop, fresh cut, sun shining, feeling good. When all of a sudden the bike just cuts off like it's out of gas (do choppers cut off instantly, if the battery is disconnected?). My First thoughts, "huh I just got gas not to long ago, I shouldn't be out", as I merge into the right lane. Luck have it, there was an exit right there. Immediately upon crossing into the exit ramp lane, I feel a thud and lose all back end control. I'm still moving pretty good and I did my damnest to keep her up.

I rode it out in a skid for a sec, head straight at the guard rail and at the last sec lowsided her and slid. My otterbox saved my ass, literally! I walked away with a scratch on the elbow. My poor baby not so lucky. I hit up the guy I got the bike from last night and he made it seem as if it was my fault that the battery came loose and dropped out the bottom of the frame. I've had the bike for a month and have put less than a 100 miles on it but you know what, it is my fault for not properly inspecting my new ride closer before ripping up and down the road.

I did do an initial look over upon purchasing and once I got it home I spent two days washing, polishing, looking it over and correcting little things. I even replaced a weather cracked front tire that the previous owner failed to replace, a rusted chain, spark plugs and I was in the process of doing other small tlc task to her. But never in a million years did I expect the battery to fall out the bottom and damn near kill me. Sorry rant over..
So, anyone know where I can get a replacement:
Battery
Headlight
Tank
Air cleaner
Rear master
And paint
