00-01 R1 Starter Solenoid Relay bad?

today i had my r1 running fine.

anyhow, i unpluged the battery while the bike was on.
when i pluged the battery back in the lights flickered because of the contact touching flickering. now the bike wont start?

I was wondering if my starter relay was to blame.
i used a test light and theres power on 1 side but not on the side that leads to the starter. on the battery side its hott with power.

How do i test this to make sure its not my run switch or my kickstand. do i short those 4 wires.

any help would be appreciated

Yeah, so i touched both battery leads from the starter relay and the starter started turning. so i know its ither the relay is bad, or the start button is not working. i dont know how the RUN button starts the relay. it seems all the wires are hot when the key is turned to the on position.

very confusing

well yeah! I checked all the fuses in the fuse box. i checked the fuses on the starter relay. I didnt see any words naming them the MAIN FUSE! So Im not sure if the Main Fuse has been checked.

dont short all the wires on the relay!
there are 2 small contacts and 2 bigger contacts on the relay.
the 2 small contacts are getting 12V from the battery when u push the start button .
this makes the other 2 bigger contacts to short between them , which brings the +12V to the starter.
check if theres 12V between the 2 smaller contacts when u press the start button.

I believe there are two spare fuses on the relay itself. You have to unplug the connector to the the solenoid to get to the "MAIN FUSE".

Does the bike turn over at all? You can bypass the side stand switch by following the wire up to the connector and completing the circut on the bikes side like with a paperclip of small wire. But if it stopped working after you were messing with the terminals on the batt I doubt that is it. If the bike isn't turning over at all you can bypass the solenoid by arching the two contacts on it with a crappy screw driver or something you don't care about. It will probably spark pretty good so watch out.

oh yeah the bike will turn over if i arch the two contacts on the starter relay. the bike will not start though. it will turn for a long time but im affraid of burining out the starter so i dont do it way too long.

anyways i tryed to short that kickstand wire and it sparked and shorted something. im too frustrated at this point. im going to bed

the starter relay also contains power to the fuel pump on allot of the bikes. maybe something to look into before jumping any other wires
