 If the engine/​starter will not turn over at all and you have verified both voltage & grounds are good, then you need to trace the voltage to the starter. Use your volt meter on the 20v DC scale and begin checking each of the following points. This is a general overview (for any bike) of the path that power takes to reach the starter motor. If the engine/​starter will not turn over at all and you have verified both voltage & grounds are good, then you need to trace the voltage to the starter.
