I have bought my xb12s and been on a long ride, the engine light has come on and off continually engine seems to run well not lacking power is this a normal issue with XB's ? Checked fuses, oil level...

That check engine light comes on and off because THERE IS A PROBLEM. You NEED TO STOP AND CHECK IT. take the bike to a dealer and have them diagnose it. unless you have a copy of ecm spy and the usb access cable your stuck taking it to a dealer. and NO, XB's don't have a check engine light problem.

Starter relay

have you been riding in the rain? check the start button,for continuity first,before you start digging into other things,sometimes they get stuck or rusty, if you dont have cont. when you push it ,try electrical cleaner ,might help,not a good idea to try to bypass the relay,could do more damage.pull the starter and bench test it,relays seldom fail,but dont rule it out,motorcycle batteries usually only last a couple of years,maybe it died,or the connections are bad
