First, were the wires removed for anything? Also, is the solenoid on the inner fender?

It is either wired wrong or it is bad.

To the best of my knowledge, you should have One large terminal post to battery, the other large terminal post to starter, the small terminal post to trigger wire

Does that look like what you have?
