Are you sure it's the starter relay thats buzzing? The starter relay should only come into the picture when you depress the start button on the handlebar. Since I'm not very familiar with the newer models, there may be a relay for something else but I don't think it would be the starter relay. The starter relay is probably located under the seat or behind one of the side panels. Were is the noise coming from. Sure it's not a circuit breaker that looks like a slender metal can with a wire connection on each end.

Could be a problem with the anti-theft system, the neutral safety switch, the key switch, or the actual starter.
Will it crank in neutral instead of park ? Do you have power at the starter posts when the key is in the start position ?
Is the security light blinking ?

My battery went dead and i replaced it and when i re-installed it the alarm went off and it wont start now


Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
valet/overide button, found under the
dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes on solid,
and the siren chirps once.

This should reset the alarm, and reset
the grounded relay on the starter wire,
allowing you to start the engine.
the valet switch is by driver side kick panel look for small button may be stuck in wire harness to hide

sounds like originally your alternator is over charging causing dash lights to come on and flicker while driving then battery is flat(low) causing problem when starting
jump start engine, check alternator charge rate, and get battery recharged and then checked(load tested)

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

Still has power to interior


Sounds like a bad ignition switch, usually in the steering column under the plastic, it should be only around $40. try AutoZone if it doesn't hellp they're good about returns
