If you remove the single switch wire on the starter solenoid, does it still crank? If not, there is voltage getting to this wire from somewhere. It should come direct from the keyswitch. But it may be feeding back through the voltage regulator. Try unplugging the regulator if it is not the solenoid.
I see question is still open, did you see my response? Find problem?
