Tested the solenoid again. Just sparks when I ground out the wire from the solenoid.

This is indicative that the contacts within the solenoid are not functioning properly....Options are rebuild solenoid or replace it..... (this assumes you can still crank the starter by jumping the bolt terminals on the solenoid)

Will try that test. Know I have not jumpered from terminal to terminal on the solenoid yet.
As to replacing the solenoid, which sounds like it might be the issue:
35850286027;
35850375000.
Along with cover 35857286000.
Descriptions for either at CSML both say the same thing - from serial number: 1042663.
Going to be in Houston for my birthday - not my idea of a great place to spend my birthday - but may go by Common Motor. Hopefully, i can drop off a set of mufflers I did not use and get store credit. Might use that to buy a solenoid.

While i was checking out Common Motor on my birthday Friday...cool bunch of people and some neat bikes there...I went ahead and picked up their starter solenoid. Also grabbed a few bullet connectors as well.
I know I have not verified it is the solenoid.
They gave me a replacement right perch as well. I snapped the one I bought from them trying not to pull my wires out before sliding it on. JB weld has been my repair but still doesn't tighten down as well as it should.
Also got store credit for two mufflers I did not use.
They have two cl350s they will be selling that are absolutely gorgeous. Exhaust on both are in great shape.
