Hey guys so me and my wife are working on her 1998 Intruder 800 that she just bought from her grandfather and are trying to figure out why the starter button isnt working. We just put a new battery, spark plugs, wires, carburetor, did an oil change, and drained the fuel tank. When you jump the starter solenoid it turns over. All the lights and everything are illuminated and its in neutral but we are still getting no response whatsoever from the starter button even with the clutch pulled and the kickstand being up or down. There is no power going to the button but the kill switch is working fine and is in the correct position. We are just trying to get this thing on the road as soon as we can. Thanks!

You need a wiring diagram and a meter to test all the legs of the starter safety circuit.
There may be a relay involved. Might be a fuse too.
