1. Perform the same checks as outlined in the other LED thread.
2. If everything checks good, then check the starter relay and the power to the starter. If you have good connections, +12v and a good ground at the starter, then you likely have a bad starter.
3. Check the voltage across the LED and the LED wiring and connectors.

If that doesn't work, then make sure that you have voltages present at the starter solenoid.
Do you have a manual, you should follow the electrical test procedures.
Electrical problems require quite a bit of patience to figure out.

Remember on cars when they had the alternator/battery light, same principle.

Real similar thread going about the LED but I'm having a slightly different problem. Brand new fresh battery installed fully charged. LED will not come on E-start won't work. Bike will start with kick and after bike is run for a while and ignition is turned back on LED will light up but go out as soon as start button is hit it will go out again. Bike is a 2003 WR 450 I bought used and I would love to get the E-start to work, any help is appreciated.
so all is fine untill you hit the start button ? correct ?
do you hear the relay click? do you have a test light?
check to see if you get power @ the starter motor. if you do.
i would bet that your starter motor is a dead duck. from here i would get it
out and bench test it! thats my guess and 2 cents worth

Have you followed that?

you jump and the bike turns over.. telling my that the input wire for the relay is not triggering the relay.
just a thought

Ok just found section in manual for testing relays and will give that a go. So Warts you mean the red wire or brown one?
have not looked at the wiring, the relay should have the wiring diagram on it.
sorry for the delayed response.
