Question about 1999 Honda CBR 600 F(4)X
Look at the end of the red cable coming from the battery. There will be a metal strip bolted to a plastic block. That is the main fuse. If it's not there it will be in the plug that goes on the starter relay.
Sometime when reversing polarity on the bike you can damage the engine management system. Check everything carefully. Hope you didn't. good luck.

SOURCE: Starter fuse. where is it? on
There isn't a fuse for the starter. The trouble you're having is most likely because of:
1) The main 30A fuse is blown. You found the spare, now all you've got to do is find where it goes. It should be in the vicinity of the starter relay (aka starter solenoid). Follow the positive battery cable, it will take you to the right spot.
2) Lose or corroded battery cable connections. Clean any corrosion from them and make sure they are securly connected to the battery.
3) The battery crapped out. These things have a tendency to suddenly give up and quit working without warning. Usually this occurs when the weather turns cold for the first time each season. Check the voltage. Normal voltage for a fully charged 12 volt battery is 12.7 ~ 13.5 volts. Less than 12.5 is suspicious.
4) Bad ignition switch or a bad electrical connection where the harness connects to the switch. There's a rectangular shaped, white plastic connector on the switch. Make sure it is connected securily to the switch and look for any signs of melting. If it looks deformed, disconnect it and scrape the corrosion from each electrical connection inside the plug with an Exacto knife or similar tool. While you've got it unplugged, check for battery voltage at the red wire inside the plug. If you've got voltage there, yet nothing works, the ignition switch is defective and must be replaced.

I don't think it's your relay, if you've got power to nothing.Unless it is somehow shorting to the frame.
Likely candidate is the key switch itself. Check the wire that feeds the switch from the battery. If it doesn't have power, you likely have a broken wire or hidden fuse.
If it's got power check the other wires coming from the switch for power with the switch on. If no power there, the switch is bad.
