Does it turn over by shorting the two big lugs on the starter relay.......

it almost sounds like you don't have it in neutral. because when I have mine in gear, the neutral light doesn't come on, and if I try starting it in gear without the clutch pulled in it doesn't click or anything, the temp light just comes on. did you try pulling the clutch lever in while starting it?

Pull the clutch lever and see if it will start now.

The clutch lever bypasses the neutral start restriction. Pull in the clutch and see if it starts. Also, sometimes you have to rock the atv or get the rear wheels to roll a bit to get the neutral light to come on. If you still have nothing:

-look for cooked wires below your shift lever on the crank case (two plugs), make sure they are clean, installed firmly and making contact to the probes. If you recently had them disconnected, make sure they are in their correct location since they look similar. These are your neutral indicator and reverse indicator plugs (if I remember right)

Let us know how it goes!

My clutch lever bypass doesn't work it will only start when the neutral light is on. Do you know what color wires are for the bypass and the neutral light? And even when I try to start it in gear while holding the clutch the only thing that happens is the red temp lights up. Please help planning big trip with my friends to go riding in next 2 wks..... Thank you

Neutral switch wire is light blue and is held onto the switch (just below in front of the output sprocket) by a screw. If you must, just short the wire to ground to allow starting in any gear.

Clutch switch uses black/yellow and black wires - if you short them together on the harness side, you can also start without the neutral switch/wire working correctly.
