All carbs/jets/air box are all stock. I spent a few hours troubleshooting yesterday and determined itís most likely a stuck starter solenoid. Which is weird because I replaced the solenoid last month. I had disconnected the battery after the bike finally died. After I charged the battery off the bike and tried to reinstall it, the starter immediately cranked as soon as I connected the battery. This is despite the keys not even being in the ignition and the kill switch in off. I thought the engine finally died due to fuel exhaustion, but I think in fact it was due to the battery finally drained too much to continue to run the starter. Waiting on starter solenoid number 3, so I can install it. Is this a common issue?

Also could be a bad decomp controller, little black box over the carb.
check to see if you have 12v going to the relay on the small wires.
if it's on all the time, then it's not the relay, it's the controller.

I agree with verslagen1.  If the starter continues to crank and the engine still runs with ignition in "off" position then the compression release relay is the most likely culprit.  If ir was only a stuck solenoid the engine would not run with ignition off.  It would only continue cranking without starting the engine.
