    Starting Motor issues

    I have a 2003 RSV 1000 R Factory Colins edition
    It was starting and running just fine until the battery was mistakenly connected with reverse polarity from a battery charger.
    Now, it will not turn over. I tried jumping the solenoid to no avail and then bought a new solenoid with no change. I pulled the starter motor and it spins fine with 12 V applied.
    I am able to turn over the engine in 6th gear by turning the rear wheel so the engine is free.
    I replaced a relay that was clicking furiously but the new relay clicks the same.
    All the lights and instruments appear to work fine but when I hit the start button I hear a sound like the engine is locked up and won't turn over.
    I am thinking it might be the ECU. Is there a way to test for that or am I on the wrong track?
