Yes it could be because the ignition system was using all the juice.

Id be checking for some kind of current draw (meaning you have something using voltage) when the bike is off or the batter got fucked up from the crash..............how bad was this crash?

Put a meter on the battery with the bike running, record that measurement. Then then rev the engine to 5,000rpms and record that measurement. Tell us what you get.

Like the hybrid said, you could have a constant draw or the charging system is junk or the battery could be bad.
