Sounds like a bung starter to me. If the batterys good, the connections are good then theres not much else to look for. Try taking the starter off and see if it turns without load. It could be a stuck pinion too thinking about it.

I assume this is an 03' WR250. Test the starter switch, Iv'e replaced two. The switch closes a circuit, and I finally gave up on stock and installed a stop switch from a late model Yamaha ATV. It will work fine and even plug in to the stock connection behind the front headlight. Other than that I'd disconnect the battery and use an ohm meter to measure if there is any drainage off the poisitve leads (disconect from the battery first ofcourse). I'll bet you find a small drain. If you do, good luck. It's somewhere in the positive wire loom. If not, it's the battery - replace it.
