My professional opinion is that a voltage drop test is far more informative than using a test light. Most test lights will illuminate below 12 volts.

An unwanted voltage drop in a circuit such as a pinched wire or corroded connector may support the current necessary to illuminate a test light, it may not, however, be sufficient to support the current necessary to energize the starter solenoid.

A test light may not indicate this unwanted voltage drop whereas a multimeter or power probe with a display will indicate a voltage drop. And this is exactly why my test light has not seen the light of day in almost two decades.

If the solenoid is not getting 12V then what exactly could it be? My sons GSR has the same issue, starts if you jump the solenoid to the battery, relays are all tested and good, clutch switch is good, starter is new.

I will test the voltage next or should I check continuity on the wire to the starter solenoid?

Thanks.

OKay guys I am at a loss.

IF I jumper the connector at the relay it fires right up when I turn the key. I bought a new relay and it still does not start with the relay plugged in. Any ideas?

Check the CIS, [clutch interlock switch] it supplies the ground, [when clutch stepped on] for the starter relays coil. 94
