Question about Motorcycles
12.5 vdc on the battery,checked the fuses,checked the key switch,checked the starter relay all OK sometimes the lights and guages will come on and I can push start to run OK but when I turn off and back on I have lights until I hit starter switch and everything goes out no lights no nothing. Still have power at the battery
Make sure the connections at the battery are tight. Just being a little loose will cause the problem you have described.

sounds like starter solenoid is staying energized sending continued power to starter. need to make sure you plugged the right wire from the starter button and not another hot wire w/ fulltime hot. also if thats ok need to test for power turning off to solenoid when releasing button. if thats ok try tapping on solenoid. lastly, make sure your positive cable from battery is hooked to starter solenoid, then another hot cable(longer) hooks from solenoid to starter, if you hook long hot cable directly from starter to battery, starter will continueous spin.

Its a bad earth between battery and chassis or starter and chassis
