Starter issues on my 01 900rr

I'm trying to get my bike going again, but my starter wont turn the bike over using the switch. It will turn it over, tho, if i put power straight from the battery to the starter. Why is this?

Hi, and welcome, Flip.

It would seem to me (as a layman's opinion) that there is a fault within the switch. Might it have suffered from water penetration or condensation?

Open the switch (2 screws below) and spray with WD40 or other water repellent available in your area.

Check contact of cable on starter motor also. Perhaps undo and emery contact faces.
