If you're using the original battery, replace it.
Battery is brand new and fully charged.
Check the starter button. If it's not making proper contact or the wiring to it is compromised, there's your problem.
All wiring to the starter button appears firmly connected and undamaged.
Does the headlight turn off when you press the starter button? If not, try replacing the starter relay.
Headlight stays on and does not dim at all when starter button is pressed.
Check continuity in the clutch switch and especially the side stand switch. Is the neutral light on?
