I would REMOVE the tank, then remove the fuel pump to drain the fuel. If there is anything foreign in the tank, you don't want to risk ruining the pump by 'pumping it out'. Since it's a fuel injected bike, you can't just 'drain' it by loosening a hose.
If there are contaminants in the tank, it needs to be thoroughly cleaned, pump as well. Hopefully the injectors are okay.
I hate to say it but you need to give a thorough thrice-over with your bike, including brake lines, potentially cut wires, etc. If there is additional damage, just a 'heads up', if you want the insurance to cover it they'll usually require charges to be filed. Neighbor just went through that when his 16 year old sons girlfriend got mad at him and keyed his car! Only way the insurance would cover it is if she was charged, or at least, there was a police report. We did a little reading and found that it's pretty much standard operating procedure for any sort of 'vandalism' to REQUIRE police involvement in order to make a claim.
Sheesh, what a day. Hope everything turns out okay for you in the end...
