If your battery and cables are good with good connections and you applied power directly to the green wire's terminal on the starter solenoid then you have a bad solenoid or starter. By applying power in this manner you are bypassing every problem that may exist on the bike and only testing the starter components. That wouldn't explain why the speedometer isn't talking to the ECM and returning a no response message. That is likely a separate issue. It can be caused by several things including bad speedometer, bad ECM, or bad wiring. It is really wide open and may need some in depth troubleshooting. I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks, P.J.

You're welcome. There is only one "tip" sensor. It is located inside the TSSM.Thanks, P.J.
