Okay, pardon my ignorance here:
The armature doesn't move at all (by that, I mean I don't hear anything click). In taking apart the solenoid, the hot wire coming from the positive battery terminal accidentally made contact with the opposite solenoid bolt and the motor started cranking, which is the first time that has happened without jumper cables connected straight to the starter motor. I assume this was me accidentally hot wiring the bike.
In disassembling the solenoid, I found that little copper rectangular plate, along with one of the copper bolt contacts, was covered in crud. I scrubbed them down well and rinsed them in electrical cleaning fluid. Reassembled and still no click from the armature and no cranking bike. I can't overemphasize how neglected this bike was, so it would not surprise me at all of the inner coil of the solenoid is completely corroded and full of crud. Considering a replacement solenoid is quite inexpensive, I think I've found my problem considering the symptoms of my non-cranking bike. Thoughts?
