very common thing with new vstar owners, the bike will not start if the kickstand is down unless the bike is in neutral - just pulling the clutch in is not enough.

Make sure you have the kickstand up and the bike in neutral, and pull in the clutch - then if it wont crank its not one of the lockouts, and you will need to use a voltmeter to see where you are losing the 12 or ground between the battery and the starter.

Make sure engine kill switch is in "run" position. If bike is in neutral and engine kill switch is off - listen to the relay (should be clicking). If not - check the fuse. You could also bypass the relay and run positive wire directly to the starter to see if it turns.

Yes, check both battery connections. The starter takes lots of juice. Report back with your findings.
