I believe your start solenoid is stuck in the closed position. Prove or disprove with a continuity tester. You can also disconnect the starter side and check operation with a volt meter. You MAY have a short in the wire that actually operates the solenoid.

Spark plug fails after two hours of riding??

Either you got the wrong type plugs (too cold) and/or that bike is running way too rich! Time to use a tool like ColorTune to get to the bottom of it. Who normally works on this bike? If you don't do the work yourself, then better to take it to a reputable shop/mechanic.

Ght comes on when passing gear is kicked in and starts losing power but when moter is turnd off and cranked up the light is out till the passing gear is kicked in again

what kind of light,check engine, abs,traction control? usually if the check engine light or service engine soon light comes on under heavy acceleration it leads to a bad O2 sensor. check the ECM for history codes.

1999 800vs replaced battery when key is turned on to start bike all lights on speedometer light up should be just green just clicks will not turnover

Actually when the key is turned on all the "dash" lights come on neutral, oil, temp and what ever else as soon as the bike starts the lights will go out. If the lights come on while the engine is running then you have a problem or it's in neutral "green".

For the bike not starting a few things, first off the battery even though you say it's new may have been sitting on the shelf for a while and they do loose power so it may need charging. The newer bikes the headlight light comes on when the key is turned on which robs the starting system of power to turn the starter, the batteries need to be good on these bikes or it's just not going to work. If the headlight comes on and looks yellow or amber then there isn't enough power in the battery. If it's a nice bright white light then there is power and the starter may need to be serviced.

If the bike has been sitting over the winter I'd guess the battery has just lost power and requires charging.

Cheers be safe and have fun with your motorcycle

Starter problem

I think there are two possible causes here:-

1.(Easy) your starter-button is permanently contacting, split the right-hand switchgear on the bars to check and clean.

2. (Git) The starter circuit relay(Not the starter-relay) in the junction box is knackered causing the circuit to be live as soon as ignition is switched on.
This will be located under the seat or behind a side panel. The whole assembly will have to be replaced probably.

Hope it's the button.
