Main Relay - Bike doesn't Run when in Gear

Well you all know the basic's, Kickstand Switch, Clutch Switch if bad won't let bike run when in gear/start when in gear. Well my Maintenance failure , melted the wiring, smaked the ECU. A friend and I replace the wiring and she started but wouldn't stay running when in gear. No one knows what the main relay does, but other star bike forums, call it the stop box relay/start relay(not the starter relay) anyway it's the Main Relay under the tool box tray, receives data from many switches and tells starter relay to engage ECU to continue to operate.
This relay after checking all the other basics, cured my problem so figured I would let Forums know so if similar issue came up. You would know.

Ride Safe
