Either you have a bad wire/connection from the battery to the starter/solenoid, a bad ground, or a bad solenoid. Start by checking the wires; make sure they're tight and clean on both ends. If they are, then you probably need a solenoid. It's probably not the starter.

What yr bike? If you have the RED Key use it to turn on the ignition. Let it re-set by leaving it on for a minute then turn off, then on again and hit the starter. It's all in the brain box. You've confused it somehow.

Confused? WTF?

What else could pushing the "Start" button mean? 'I want coffee?'

Sounds like there's a computer that is being affected by the battery change and needs to be reset.

Sashi's right. The all important RED key is chipped to let the computer know that it's the key that allows "changes" to the system. If he replaced the battery and didn't have the RED key in the ignition then the CPU will trigger the imobilizer. The next thing that will occur is desribed by our post-er. Gotta re-set the brain.

Oh bullshirt, you're just making this up, right? In the garage: "now Duckie, I'm going to be doing a minimally invasive surgery here. I want you to understand that when I'm done, I really really really need you to start, ok? Do you have any issues to talk over before we start? Can I get you a Vallium or anything first?"

He's speaking the truth if it's a newer Duc. They stopped making ST2 models a while ago though.

My Duc came with two black keys and a red key. The red key is to be put in a safe place and only inserted if there is some kind of computer re-set that needs to be done. The dealer says, "don't lose it."

It's a lot of damn money to replace it.

The ignition, wiring harness and cpu are all dedicated. You can't replace one section and fix a problem. You're average expensense in replacement is right at $4500. NO SH!T- Ken. Remember, I pulled a stint at a Ducati dealer for a minute. It's an expensive mistake to loose the key.
