Starter motor not working

I have a 2017 arctic cat alterra 400 and it’s been running. I ran in that morning and then washed my truck. After washing my truck I went to crank it to go put it up by my shed and it wouldn’t crank. The cylinoid was clicking and getting power but the starter wouldn’t. I later tried to hit wire just to see if the starter was blown but it tried to turn over. I have no idea how to check the wiring or where to.

I have checked the battery and it is good. I was able to run wires from the cylinoid to the starter and it try to turn over so it is something to do with the wiring. I have swapped relays and the relays seem to be good.
