Starter solenoid/relay/switch help!

How do I have the WORST luck with these? Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong? Every one of these are allowing the starter to continuously turn over as soon as I hook up the battery. There is no way all of these I have tried are all sticking so please explain how this is happening? It is driving me nuts!!!

Freshly charged new battery. 2 of these are brand new OEM Honda solenoids.

Sorry, I meant to mention it is a 96 trx300fw. No key, it just turns over. Bike has set up for awhile and just finishing a frame swap. Ktriebol, I figured I have something screwed up with wiring for all these to act the same way, but everything is plug and play. I will get a drawing or more pics shortly. Something dumb on my part I'm sure.
Here are some more pics if you guys see something obvious I have wrong.

Polarity on the solenoid/relay does NOT matter, right? I have tried it both ways and didn't change anything anyhow.

when you done the frame swop , what year wiring harness and head light assembly switch did you use

Everything is off the 96, the original bike Fish.

The bike was wrecked and I swapped everything over to the donor frame.
Got it figured out I think. Stupidity as I thought and not remembering how everything was hooked up when I pulled the plastics months ago and I had a wire crossed which was jumping the solenoid. Frustration got In The way of rationalization. Thanks for taking the time to the help all
