2008 Foreman won’t start

This is my first post. I bought a 2008 Honda foreman 420ES. It has started and ran fine for the first month. Yesterday the kids were riding and used the kill switch to shut it off. I went to start it back up and all we have is a click from the solenoid. I towed it back to the house and have tried the following with no success. Tested the battery and swapped it out with newer one from another unit. Checked the solenoid it has 12v and 1-2 ohms when the start button is pressed. Took the starter off and bench tested it. I went ahead and took it apart and inspected it and cleaned it up and put it back on. I have no voltage to the plug at the starter. I pull all the plastic off and inspected all plug connections and looked for loose or broken wires and everything looks good. The neutral N on the dash blinks 2 long blinks and 4 quick blinks. Can the shift motor or angle sensor keep the unit from starting. If so any advice on troubleshooting would be great.
