I have a 2004 Dr650. Never had a single problem until it stranded me at work at 1:00 in the morning and left me with a 5 mile walk home. Hit the starter button and nothing. After a tow home the next day, I start to trouble shoot the electrical system. I find there's no power getting to the starter relay. After checking all the other relays, switches and diodes, I find the problem. The clutch lever position switch wire(yellow with green stripe) is routed around the left fork. It then goes into the wiring harness behind the headlight where it connects with a male/female connector. I'm guessing that locking my bars a few hundred times, pulled that wire loose. It's definetly worth checking to see if that wire has enough free play while moving your bars left to right. I hope this info saves somebody else a walk home.
