New guy no start

Hi everyone, so I'm the new guy with the no start. for a while my 2006 klr would not crank unless I turned left. then it just stopped cranking at all.

I can jump the solenoid and crank it.

it runs great.

is there an engine to body ground I can check?

Unleash your multimeter on this:

From your description (problem associated with handlebar position), you probably have an OPEN CIRCUIT in your WIRING HARNESS, an anomaly making intermittent contact, depending upon where the handlebar pointed.

The wiring harness flexes when the handlebars move, suggesting a problem there, to me.
