So I have read most of the "bike won't start" threads and am slowly troubleshooting this issue.

Bought new battery last night and am using a fluke true rms meter.

Key off - 12.61vdc
Key on - 12.35vdc
Key on 5 mins 12.32vdc
Start button - 12.19vdc

When the key turns to on, fuel pump starts. When start button is pushed, solenoid clicks but nothing to starter. Clutch switch and kickstand switched are bypassed temporarily.

Neutral light is on and oil light (this is normal iirc?) what should I check next?

I appreciate any insight you have. I'm an HVAC service tech and troubleshoot but I deal mainly with ac voltage.

On the positive side of the solenoid, you will always have battery voltage. When you press the start button and the solenoid clicks, do you have voltage on the terminal with the cable going to the starter? If not appears your solenoid is not working.

Pretty sure it's the starter solenoid. The Cycle Specialties guy tells me the vn1500 L is a different solenoid but couldn't tell me how or what's different. Took my tank off, dumped old gas, put in new gas, jumped the coil and it starts and runs.

Anyone know what's different about the S1?
