Question about 1982 Yamaha XZ 550
If it died over a bump, the problem is almost certainly electrical. Check that all the fuses are firmly in place in the fusebox (while you're in there, clean off any corrosion you notice). Have a careful look at the cable that grounds the battery to the frame-- take the bolt off, clean off corrosion (steel wool or fine sandpaper). Try shorting out the contacts from the ignition lock -- maybe one of those wries snapped or came adrift. If it starts or the lights come on, there's your problem. Does this model have a killswitch that could have been bunmped to the "off" position?
