Hi, so the starter solenoid relay is not activated by the start button?
Have you checked the ignition fuse? the starting circuit has a cut off relay as well as the solenoid relay. the cutoff relay gets power from the battery to ignition switch to ignition fuse and through the engine kill switch.
Start button can only work if the cut off relay is active.
All fuses get their power from the ignition switch except the main fuse. Let me know what info you need.
I would check the fuses with a multimeter if you have access to them. They can sometimes look okay but are not.
That is more likely in the case of complete power failure.
The starter relays depend on the fuses for their operation.
Once your horn is working again all the rest might fall in line.
Check for power on your fuse panel and fuses. Maybe the ignition switch is not sending the fuses what they need.
Be sure to check for battery voltage coming to the fuse panel from the ignition switch first. The wire might be brown/blue. A red wire supplies the ignition switch from the battery.
The starter cutoff relay is under the fuel tank or neck covers somewhere. I would leave that for now until the rest is checked out and get back to me with any findings.
