have you tested the starter. that is the first thing to do. use a hot wire from the battery to the starter to make sure the start even works. then if its okay then either you have a bad wire or a bad switch. if the clutch is not pulled the starter wont work.. if the kickstand is down for some bikes it wont start.
You need to check the main fuse. You have to get to the battery and follow the main positive cable from the battery until you find the first junction box. This box will be the starter relay and under a cover there you will find the main fuse. Check this fuse for being bad. While you are there check all your wiring to the starter relay and out to the starter. Here also you should find the main fuse box. so check all the fuses so you get to know where things are.
if you follow the positive cable from the battery it will lead you to the starter solenoid. it's jast a little square that also holds the main fuse. you can check if it's bad just by bridging the to posts together with a set of needle nose pliers. if pushing the start button just makes it click when you bridge it it should activate the starter. if the starter works when you bridge it, you know the solenoid is bad. if your stater still clicks when you bridge it, make sure your battery is at full charge. if your battery is at full charge and it still clicks, your starter is bad.
The breaker thing is your starter relay and it may be defective or worn out.
These are generic comments
When you turn on your ignition switch, you allow the starter switch to have power. When you press the start button, that energizes a electric magnet in your starter relay which in turn puts the full capacity of your battery at the starters disposal. If this isn't hapening, there is some problem in your relay.
Prove that by jumping those two posts, the ones with the big wires attached. If your starter turns, id suspect the relay. You may have opther troubles as well. Check the relay. BTW - you need really big wire to jump the relay, at least the same size as is going to your starter.
Take a test light or multimeter and check if
power is getting to the starter each time you push your starter button.
If so, the solenoid or starter relay is okay.
If not, then find the relay, it is at the end of the battery positive wire. It may be under the side cover or under the seat.
Use your test light again and see if power is on both sides of the relays larger terminals when you push your button (key on of course). You should hear the solenoid or relay click. It connects the positive battery terminal to the starter to make it run.
If it doesn't click or pass the power through then check if power gets to it's smaller wire when you push the button. If not, could be the button, or possibly something like a bad side stand switch or engine stop switch.
