    Also, is the solenoid supposed to get any type of ground any where? Bc I used a jumper on the starter wire and got action that way, so I know the starter is good, etc.

    Ground for the solenoid coil is supplied via the clutch and/or neutral switch through the green/red wire. The yellow/red is energized from battery + through the red wire to the key switch ON then black wire to starter switch to yellow/red. So, try pulling in the clutch or shorting those two leads, or just jumper the green/red to ground.

    BTW, if the starter doesn't turn when the solenoid actuates, don't immediately blame the starter. Low battery charge, poor connections, and what bit me last - a bad solenoid (contacts arced and burnt) can cause it.

    I donít have the clutch wires hooked up yet, but I will plug those bad boys in when I get home! And I know the starter is good, so Iím not worried about that. I used a starter jumper and it worked fine.

    Ground is definetely my issue. Iím not getting ANY type of response from the solenoid and I used a multimeter to test the wires coming off of it and Iím getting 12+ volts

    Wez , did you get that seat from eBay? I almost bought one just like it
    Yes, this is from eBay
    I think it's the Vietnam seller.
