Won't start. Starter relay buzzzzzin'

Did some water riding today, deep water as usual. I have a brand new starter relay
(with dialectric grease) and all electrical works, except when I push the starter button, the relay buzzes. I think it's the starter, since I can pull start it no problem. Just wanted some experienced opinions. Probably a corroded starter connection since I ride water a lot. Hopefully not the starter itself. I'll take everything apart that I think it could be, and do some Analog meter testing. Any opinions, suggestions?

I've never dug into that area, but I imagine the relay would be easiest to check.( you don't mean solenoid do you?)

Thank-you Froy!! That was it! Jeeez, I didn't even check that before, because I can't even imagine why it would be loose, but it was. Thank-you again! That goes to show, it can be the simplest things. I've had this bike in many, many pieces fixing things, so I would have never even thought it could be only a loose battery terminal.. I feel dumb, but relieved.
