Starting issue on relatively new bike.
She is a 2016 Vstrom 650XT. Had an issue starting last year and had right handlebar starter switch replaced under warranty.
Situation at present as follows,
Turn the key, lights on, guages come alive, fuel pump spins, clearly audible click from the starter relay, and that's it, bike won't start.
It has been intermittent like this and cleaning out the clutch switch on the left handlebar had previously rectified this.
I have, cleaned and reinserted clutch switch, also when shorting the clutch switch with a paperclip the symptoms remained the same.
Starter switch is less than 1 year old and looks immaculate so should be ok.
Sidestand switch checked and is clean and moving freely.
Checked all fuses and all ok.
The starter relay appears clean and as new.
When I shorted the relay with a screwdriver the bike started beautifully which would indicate the battery is ok.
I have browsed the forum extensively but as yet cannot come up with a solution to this issue and any input at all would be most appreciated.
