I had an issue a few years ago on my 03. Was out riding and stopped for gas. Went to start bike and had ignition on power but no start. Rolled down hill and popped clutch to start and get home. Then found I had no reverse. Could hear click from solenoid but not engaging. Ended up being switches on handlebar. Loosened screws on grip and sprayed Deoxit contact cleaner inside. Everything started to work and haven't had issue since.Have a 2003 1800 and the reverse only works for a couple of seconds. Not sure if it worked before as i couldn't start it. I have changed the solenoids which cured the starting problem but the reverse has me beat.

Deoxit will accomplish what you are recommending to do with WD-40 without the toothbrush and disconnecting anything. I have seen it just spray away green corrosion on contacts.Resistor Assy. For Reverse Part # 36280- MCA- 003
Disconnect this Plug & Wire Assy.
Spray Terminals on Each Male & Female part of plug contact points
with WD 40 Work both contact parts with OLD Tooth Brush with WD40
NEXT Insert both part’s of plug and REMOVE again about 20 Times Then Blow both parts off with air hose.
Reconnect Plug & Try.
This Plug sometimes get’s Green & Loses Contact..
You said you replaced 2 solenoids....... Front one is for engine starter Rear is for Reverse
If you are using cheap after market Solenoids ( DON’T ) they are short lived
Good Luck KEN
The yellow/red comes from fuse #12 which gets power from relay A when it contacts. green/red comes from the reverse regulator.So found everything and tested everything and all good. Problem seems to be the solenoid b doesn't seem to be clicking over and now it won't start. Where do the yellow/red and green/red wire from solenoid B originate so i can check continuity.
