Thanks Mike, I did figure out the codes but I still don't know where it leads...going by the no start response. I just pulled out and tested all the relays and they seem OK, actuating normally on DC Voltage. On the the sticky solenoid I have not quite looked at that yet, I only just cleaned the terminals and contacts. You have lead as to how to get them cleaned out?

Means taking it off and taking it apart for "a good coating of looking at".

At least I would imagine so...

Can you try a different relay in that position?

How old is the bike, and how many miles/km has it done?
 
This is a well known issue, read the Click, no crank topic in our FAQ section.

Got the bike last year at 0km, it's a 2007, now barely 4500Km.  In fact I came across the link "the click, no crank" and followed as illustrated, before I posted for help.

Even with the mod, no response when I push the start-button and the red-light (ECU 44 error)  active.

I will get to the solenoid over the weekend and run a deep check & cleaning on it.

And Yes, i tried a different relay on the spot... Same results.

The error 44 you are getting suggests that there is a problem with the volts feeding the start relay coil, which is a very different issue and could suggest a bad connection to the ECU, though there are other possibilities.

I had similar issues when I bought my bike, but the click no crank modification plus a brand new motobatt gel battery cured it.
main issue was the battery
check the simple things first

The normal click no crank issue is down to either wiring or battery (or sometimes poor charging of the battery).
But the error 44 is a different matter, not so sure about that.

Silly question time - is battery fully charged?

with some time to spare and youtube videos  Smile...I removed and ran a response to input voltage check on the solenoid and starter motor... the response was fantastic, which eliminate any stickiness or faulty starter motor or solenoid.

I will put the battery to some good charge and run some checks on the ignition to starter circuit.

OK, thought that might be the case but worth checking.
To recap, the service light came on, then went out but came on again the moment you pressed the starter button, but the fuel pump still runs OK when the ignition is turned on?

Exactly.

Initially the service light remained on after the cycling, but I realised the change while I was checking the connectors along the oil sensor area, so I removed the tank and airbox to check further, cleaned as many contacts as possible. it then cycles through (fuel pump kicks in) with no service light, but as soon as I press the start switch, service light pops out.

And in diagnostics you get error 44 active with no other faults listed.
 
Did you pull any connectors apart, and are you certain they went back together correctly?
 
When you press the starter button, did you also hear any click from the start relay?
 
Could you still hear the pump running?
