Bike not starting.

Hi all...
Having issues trying to start the bike today, was working perfectly yesterday. The dash lights up on turning the key and the bike test message is OK, but nothing happened when the starter button is pressed. Things I have checked are:
The battery is brand new and showing 12.6V, have removed the battery cables and cleaned the terminals. I have removed the starter relay and done the test as per the manual applying 12v across terminals 1 and 2 and I have continuity across B and M terminals. If I bridge the B and M terminals the starter operates and the bike will start., likewise if I apply 12V across 1 and 2 while the relay is connected up the bike will start.
I have checked the starter switch and have continuity on the pair of wires to the kill switch and starter when they are operated.
The issue seems to be between the starter switch connector block and the relay.
Any ideas will be appreciated.

Bike is F4 2010 1000R

Cheers Sam

When I bridged the relay and started the bike I engaged 1st and put the stand down and the bike shut off.... I do remember reading on another thread about the tilt sensor... could that be at fault?

If it’s not cranking then Maybe the kill switch wiring or like Mv Arthur said the side stand switch.

The Tilt Sensor is a dumb switch. Unless it is deranged in its housing, it is probably not the problem.

After working through the check list it turned out to be the clutch switch, I took it apart and cleaned the metal contacts and all is well again.

Many thanks for your replies

All fixed own the nick of time I have a MOT booked in for tomorrow and was going to have to cancel.
I found it strange that it happened, the switch is so well protected and tucked away from the weather., if any of the switches were to fail I'd expect it to be the side stand switch which is always getting covered in dirt.
