Does the pump prime?
How much voltage is the regulator putting to the battery?

What does the bike do when you try to start it?
Any codes?

It makes a click that comes from the solenoid when I try to start it .I at first thought that was it but after changing it I have the same issue . Yes the pump primes as well .

You said you changed the battery.
Is the battery currently fully charged with over 12v (preferably 13v) shown on a voltmeter?
Anything below 12v is considered low, and 11v is considered effectively dead.

So you hear your starter solenoid clicking?
If you're sure it's the starter solenoid clicking, then some power is getting to it, but not enough to get the starter to spin. Bad ground/faulty wiring?
There's a starter relay on the left side of your subframe. You have to remove the tail section to access it - I'd inspect that relay and fuse and see what noises it makes _ if any _ when you try to start the bike.
This sounds dumb, but you're sure the kill switch is in proper position?

Bank angle sensor input to CPU?
You can try and start it with a 12v Powerpac clamped onto you battery terminals.
Did you blow any fuses before you replaced them? If it was the 30 amp main you may have a short.
