    So just to get the obvious ones out of the way. do you know these bikes? you have to hold the clutch lever in before the starter will engage. also if the engine is in gear it will not crank if the side stand is down regardless of wether the clutch is held or not.
    need a little more info, what happens when you press the go button?.

    If you are certain the fuel supply and spark are there, then chances are good that the spark plugs are fuel fouled - especially since you did have it running initially. At that time, if it wasn't warmed up to proper operating temp before it was turned off, the plugs can foul, making it very difficult or impossible to restart. On top of this, the battery must be topped up and strong to provide a decent spark. If the battery voltage sags below 10V during cranking, it is part of the problem.

    Try a new set of plugs with a strong battery and let us know what happens.

    Yup, these things foul easy. Let her warm up each and every time. My biggest gremlins have always been battery. When she doesn't start on first thumb, then I switch to the battery I keep on the tender.

    It's got a new battery new plugs high octane fuel all fuses are new clutch switch is good side stand switch is good on off switch is good evening comes on the pump priming, even when you hit the start button. But it doesn't fire. It will when it hop the starter relay and yes the relay is good.

    Bit of a contradiction there I think.

    Starter relay is good, and yet... the bike only starts when you bridge the relay
