04 ninja 500 ignition switch

My friend has a 04 ninja 500 when you try and start the bike we hear a click from the junction box and the bike won't even try to start have crossed the terminal on the starter solenoid and the bike cranks up fine that way and is rideable even just won't start with the ignition button, anyone have any idea what this could be?

Bad connection bad ground or bad switch. Try cleaning your switch contacts first.

check the button, and your starter solenoid could still be bad the connection from the switch might be bad, thus allowing you to bridge the solenoid with the screw driver and get it started.

Its either your starter button or your solenoid.

Be sure to check your Clutch, Sidestand and Neutral switches too, those will stop the starter from engaging.

two screws just take it apart slowly and pay attention to where everything goes. Its pretty simple.
