The solution to this is just move the engine thru its stroke a bit by using the kickstart or putting it in gear and rocking it a bit and then try the e-start again.
However...this does not explain the horn and turn signals not working properly unless the engine needs to be running in order for those to work...that I'm not sure of since my '04 does not have a horn or signals.
Give it a shot.

Not sure if you ride street or dirt, but if you are in the dirt then I would suggest you don't go alone cause if your battery fails you, you will likely have an extremely difficult time getting the bike started again using the kickstart and I'm sure a long walk home will ruin your day....I know it would ruin mine.

you might want to check for a draw...
if your meter will read 2 amps... prolly all you would need...
i would say if the bike has more than 10-20mA you have a problem with something drawing down the battery..
if anyone knows what the acceptable draw rate is for a WR450???
