When you say you replaced the relay, do you mean the starter solenoid? I would suggest the solenoid is duff or incorrectly connected.. A starter system works by switching on the ignition, pressing the starter button, the solenoid closes and allows power from the battery to turn the starter motor. When your engine has started you release the button the solenoid opens so no power is going to the starter. Re check the solenoid wiring, when you press the start button do you hear a click? A starter motor simply cannot work if the solenoid is open as there is no power available to it.
Hi, Anonymous your starter motor is not/was not the problem that dubious title goes to the starter drive/Bendix/clutch which is a separate component that is activated by the starter motor it is a mechanical gear driven part that engages the clutch pack to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Trace the starter wire to the solenoid. Any loose connections? Check the other heavy wire to the solenoid. It should have power present at all times. If no click from the solenoid when the starter button is pressed, check the wiring connections coming from the handlebar. Lastly, look at the starter switch for possible damage from the spill.
The click is significant. This indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either indicate a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:
with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty.
