The earlier "fix" suggests a possible wiring problem -
more specifically, a historic issue with Chrysler products is the ground connections, which are typically insufficient.
Check both the battery to engine and then the engine to frame (firewall). If either are worn or frayed replace them. Even if it looks fine I would still replace the motor to frame cable with a heavy duty grounding strap available at most parts stores. ( doesn't have to be a specific cable - can even be homemade, just make sure it is heavier than the original and is connected to a good, bare area.)

SOURCE: Infiniti I 30 will not start
I am assuming the fuse was not an issue before replacing the starter. You probably pinched a wire with the starter when you installed it. Take the starter back out and inspect the wiring harness, also see if the fuse blows when the starter is removed.

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

SOURCE: starter relay fuse keeps blowing
30 amps is heavy, so bypass nothing. Look for a short in a heavy circuit like the the headligh, starter (questionable because of delay) same with starter relay. You have a wire shorting out on the frame somewhere. It's that cut and dry.. Go to the auto parts store and buy an automatic circuit breaker that matches the fuse type your bike uses. but instead of a 30 amp, get a 20 or 25 amp. As long as theres a short it will trip and reset by itself saving you the hassle of changing fuse every few minutes.. While the breaker cycles on and off you can search for the short. When you find it, the breaker will stop cycling and stop in the on or reset. Good Luck
