Starter Relay Location

My 1098 has chose to not start on me twice. Once after I washed it drove somewhere and she would not start. Second time in the morning of a track day when the bike was wet with morning dew. The problem is not the solenoid by battery nor the wiring, both upgraded. The battery is solid also. Turns over fast and strong. When the issue happens I can hear fuel pump, I push start button and hear a slight quiet click by handlebar. I have looked under fuel tank and both sides of body work. The schematic show three relays in a fuse pack. I have new relay which looks like a small Bosch relay. Any help is appreciated.

The relay is on the lower left below the radiator and it's probably the culprit. Just Trace the cable from the starter and you will find it. It's not supposed to be user serviceable but I took mine apart and cleaned it out. Works like a charm now. Basically plastic dust gets in between the contacts and doesn't allow them to let the current through. The solenoid activating is the click you are hearing. It'll get worse over time and eventually won't let any current through and the bike won't start at all
