I did the crossing of terminal with screwdriver and with a wire from positive terminal to directly to the stud on the right side of relay
A. I got power to the fuses and the starter did work. I just replaced tha relay last year. so I guess I need to replace it again as there is no clicking that I can feel when crossing terminals. Fuse is also good. When I cross the terminal I do get power to relay B also and it clicks I can feel it.

That looks to me like you have the relay connected backward.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Relay "A" will not click when you jump it as described. That is normal. Before you condemn the relay "A" you might want to try this. Do tests #1 and #2 below.


Test #1: With the key and kill switch on hook the test light as illustrated below. Yes that funny looking thing is a test light. With the alligator clamp grounded (negative battery) find the little Yellow wire with the red (yel/rd) stripe on relay "A" and probe as the illustration shows. Each time you push the start button the test light must light. Does it? If it lights go to test #2.

Test #2: Key and kill switch on. Hook the test light as illustrated below. Alligator clamp on battery positive. ( Battery +) With the bike in neutral (neutral light on) probe the small Brown wire with the red stripe on relay "A".(brnl/rd) The test light should light at all times in neutral. (no need to push start button, Will make the test invalid if you push the start button) If not raise the side stand and pull in the clutch. The light should light with the clutch pulled in only. (light goes out with clutch out) Does the light come on for any/all of the tests? Check back with us with results.

I'm just going by what you posted. You haven't done much as far as doing what people have suggested to diagnose the problem, just jumping around here and there and jumping to conclusions that turn out wrong.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

Larry, the only time these knowledgeable guys have not quikcly solved my problems on both of my bikes was when I didn't do EXACTLY what they suggested! There a number go great guys here that, by personal experience, know the precise sequence required to eliminate a number of variables in the troubleshoot process.
