2004 won’t start

Back story: I broke my ankle so the bike sat. I started occasionally and all seemed fine. I tried to start today and it turned over real slow so I charged the battery. My smart charger says the battery is fine. The fuel pump runs. The relay clicks. Bike doesn’t even try and turn over. There is no load on the battery and the voltage stays good.
Do the starters on these bikes ever get ‘stuck’? I tried rolling it in gear but that didn’t change anything.

Check the magnetic switch under the left side cover. Controls flow to starter. Known weak spot.
Even if it’s clicking? I’ll dig into it.
Some sparks and cranking should take place if battery is good.
She cranked. Off to get a solenoid tomorrow.
