how would you energize the starter solenoid manually?
2002 xv1600, seems like the two of the four pins could be crossed to activate the starter??

Caution - Road* 2002 xv1600

NOT SO! You can create a dead short

3 of the 4-Pins are +12vdc Positive Polarity (Red, Red & Red/White wires)
The Blue wire is Negative 12vdc Polarity for the Starter Relay Coil that is triggered by the Starter Push Button.
The Red/White wire is the Positive Polarity of the Starter Relay Coil.

My methodology follows for a Known GOOD Starter Relay:
I would suggest unplugging the Ignitor Unit (ECU) to prevent Feed-Back.
Bike in Neutral
Ignition Key-ON with Known GOOD Ignition Fuse & Battery.
Jumpering Blue wire to Battery Ground will energize Relay.

You'll want to take note that the Road* uses a Relay Unit to validate some of the Pre-Start Interlocks before enabling the Starter Relay!

Hope the above info puts you on the proper path :)
