Starter & solenoid kept on working reliably on the bench, so fitted it all back on the bike today. Put the plugs in to give the starter a decent workload. Pressing the button turns the engine over every time now so problem solved. Seems it was mechanical in nature, soleniod plunger wasn't pulling in far enough to connect large terminals.
All good now so wiring is all done. Next job is make a lid for the electrics box. Then in a couple weeks time I'm taking it to get a 2 into 1 exhaust system made up.

Yes it seems like it was binding somewhere. Don't think I'll ever know exactly what the issue was but it's fixed now.

Yep, once the pipes are done I'll feel like I'm moving forward a lot.
