Generally speaking, do you have any idea how much time the bike has set outside? What's the general state of corrosion and oxidation on it?
Electrical problems suck. Any starting problems I had were traced to:
Old / dead battery
Failed stator - R/R connection
Corrosion under the battery leads that clamp to the battery terminals
I've never had a motorcycle starter fail, including bikes that were 5-15 yrs old.
When you say you tried crossing your solenoid, I don't know what that means.
I also don't know what "colts on battery" means.
