About a week ago someone busted all the steering locks and moved the bikes around in my apartment complex parking lot. It seems like they hammered on the barends and snapped off a piece of something. Today I found a chunk kf metal from my bike on the ground. Can anyone identify what part number this piece is a part of? I’m stuck here

TBH that doesn't look like a piece off of our bikes, and I've completely dismantled by mine and rebuilt it a couple times. Another element to make me think its not, but it's hard to tell from the picture angle so correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks to be a torx screw head, which isn't used on our bikes.

Usually when the steering lock is broken, it either breaks a small chunk of the steering head casting (the cast section that holds the steering head bearings), so the pin on the steering lock has nothing to lock against, or it breaks the actual lock mechanism (on the bottom of the ignition switch) neither of those parts look like the item in your picture. if you really want to know what is damaged you will need to remove part of the fairing so you can see the lock mechanism (under the top yoke) and the steering head casting, get a few pictures and we can tell you what needs to be done, repair is usually easy and relatively cheap, but it requires quite a bit of manual work to get access to the repair area, you either need a compétant TIG/MIG welder to build up the broken stop on the steering head casting, or you need to buy a second hand ignition switch and swap the lock mechanism from the new lock with the broken one on your current lock (that way your original key still operates everything). Until you know if it’s the lock or the frame, you won’t know which part to replace/repair.
