I get no power to the starting solenoid. All the switches tested good tests good all the way up to the blue bosch multilink in the left hand container on the side. My dealer suggests I cut and splice the 2 red wires together and bypass the multilink. Anybody heard of this--oh yeah the bike runs perfect in every other respect. Just seems a little bit crazy splicing the only hot wire to the starting loop..,You could try putting a multimeter, set on its 0-20 volts range, across the multilink when it is under starting load (use whatever each side of it links to as connection points for the meter). If the connector (and wiring) were perfect you would see no volts developed across it. If it has deteriorated then some of the volts that you would want to see developed across the starter solenoid will drop across the duff connector instead. It may even warm up a little. It should clean up though, and you can keep it good with contact grease of some sort. I did similar with with the connections and wiring runs to my ignition coil and found that I was dropping 2 volts, of the 12.5 available, in the wiring harness.,,,

Why does my altenator get so warm and charg at 11.55


I would take your alternator to an auto parts store that does free alternator testing. That will give you a definitive answer if you should replace or keep looking for an electrical problem.

Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

It seems like there is a bad connection in the electrical system


It looks like your accumulator is nearing its life span 'cos it not storing the charge. Get a replacement. To check whether alternator is charging your battery, start your engine and remove one one of the cable attached to the battery and if the engine stop then you have a problem with the alternator. Get a mechanic to fix it.

I don't see any problem unless you are having a starting problem or dim headlights..
What you are describing is pretty normal behavior.  The voltage regulator senses the battery condition and the electrical load on the battery.
If you are having problem anew battery will solve it.
