Can you hear the relay near the oil tank feed hose clicking?

Fuses okay?

The relay sends power to the starter solenoid when all is good

and you push the starter button. There is also side stand

switch and clutch switch involved in activating the relay

as well as battery power.

Might be the relay, wiring or one of the safety switches.
