2008 250 Sounds Different after dropped

I just bought a 2008 Ninja EX250 from a friend about 3 weeks ago. It has around 7000 miles on it and has a carbon fiber Yoshimura Exhaust. Last night while warming up the bike it slipped off its stand and fell on the left side. I immediately ran over and picked the bike up and killed the engine. I then restarted it and there didn't seem to be a much damage except for the fact that the clutch bar broke in half so my first question is how hard is it to replace one? I saw them on amazon for about $10 and I'm pretty good with fixing things so hopefully I can do this myself. Secondly, when running the bike today it seemed to sound different than usual. It used to have a deep throaty roar when I accellerated but now its more of a low sound with a bit of a whine mixed in. I talked to a friend and he said it's possible that it may just need some time to work itself out but I was wondering if anyone else has any suggestions? Thanks.

Most likely it's your battery. Batteries HATE the cold. Keep your bike in your garage if possible.
