SO, the bridging of the solenoid worked ?

Kind of does point to that being the issue if so.....

But, from memory, there is a tiny hole in the upper part of the solenoid where you can spray some brake cleaner/contact cleaner
in and give it a little while to dry, then add some WD40....and, while you are at it, undo the power leads and clean the contact point
and reattach..... also, the trigger plug, give it a wash and lube.... see if that helps

Hi, just thought I'd throw in my two bob. When you try to crank does the headlight go out? If the headlight stays on you possibly have a starter switch or clutch switch problem. You should check the power to the pull in side of the start solenoid with a 12v test light, there may be a circuit but it could have a big resistance and not able to drive the coil. See if you can hear or feel the coil pulling in. If the coil/solenoid is working and the battery is charged then the likely problem will be burnt Contacts on the relay/solenoid. I hope this helps.
