Try pulling in the clutch? Shift into first then back into neutral? Toggle the kill switch back and forth?

Is there any clicking when you hit the starter button? Maybe the battery is weak? Battery connections loose?

Did you try pulling in the clutch while pushing the starter button even though you were in neutral and shouldn't need to have the clutch in?

Not sure what year/model we're talking about here. There should be a main circuit breaker right off the positive lead of the battery. Replacements can be had at Napa or equivalent auto parts store for usually under $10. You can Google or use the search feature on this forum titled " main circuit breaker" and probably find heaps of info on replacement part numbers. Hope its an easy fix.

The starter system is fairly easy to troubleshoot.
Start at the battery + and using a test light or meter work your way back.
We know the 40 amp breaker is good since his lights and dash work.
Go through the 10 amp fuse, through the ignition switch, run/stop switch, start switch and to one side of your starter relay.
If you have 12 volts getting there, then check the clutch switch that should provide a ground to the other side of the starter relay coil.
With a good 12 volts on one side and a good ground on the other, that relay should energize, providing a massive 12 volts directly from the battery to the starter.
If it doesn't then replace the starter relay.
You could also test the starter, put your bike in neutral and leave the key off, you don't need the bike on to test this.
Short out the two large cables across the starter relay, this will put 12 volts directly to the starter and it should turn the engine.
Of course it won't start because your bike is off, but it should still turn the engine. If it doesn't then you may have a bad starter.
Hope this diagram helps.

I have done this before, going into a shopping mall parking lot, I push in the clutch and coast to a stop, shut off the bike and it is still in second.
No big deal, but it still should have started with the clutch in, no matter what gear you are in.
Check the clutch switch, it should apply a ground directly to the starter relay.
