Starting Problems

Ive got a 1986 Vulcan vn750. im having starting problems. My battery sits at 12.7 volts. When I start it nothing happens. I tried shorting the starter solenoid and it turns but doesn't get running. This leads me to believe that there is a problem with the wires between the kill switch and start button. I've checked all the wires but I can't find any issues.

As your 1st post I'm sure some members would like to see an introduction in the Newbie section before you ask for help.......perhaps you could look in the verses??????

Thanks for explaining how the culture is on this site and I respect how you guys roll. However, I still don't care for introductions or socializing. As explained earlier I would like to fix my bike.

Now as for my original post. I hope I included enough information about the problem. I can provide more information if needed.
