2015 Ninja 300 wont start?

I recently was going about 95 on my ninja and it just died on me, so I coasted to the side of the road and tried to start it back up but it wouldn’t start. The fuel pump kicked on, the lights on the dash were on, but the starter wouldn’t go. I pulled off my fairings and banged on the starter to try to get it to kick on but then the starter solenoid started rapidly clicking every time I pressed the starter button. I bought a new battery and installed it and now instead of the starter solenoid clicking, when I hit the start button the fuel pump primes and the starter does nothing????? Help!

I would check (temporarily bypass) the side stand switch. If it thinks the kick stand is down while you are in gear, it won’t start or run.

I would also fumble with the engine on/off switch on the right handle bar to see if that is also a problem.

Look around at engine (power commander?) connectors, too. See if any are loose or disconnected.

The exact same thing just happened to me a few days ago, now it wont turn on, all normal lights go on in the dash when key turned to “on” but the bike wont crank of turn over. Mine is a 2017 abs with roughly 4500 miles. If you find out anything that helps resolve this issue please let me know!
