Is the bike in gear? There's a safety switch built into the clutch perch, so that the bike won't start in gear. Could it be that? Need more info.

No,it is in neutral.
Any other suggestions??
Does the starting button go straight to the solenoid?

The starter button goes to a relay which fires the starter.

Check the switch.

Check the relay.

You should be able to track down the issue between those two items.
