    okay, sorry you are stuck there

    First the easy things, kill switch is in the on position
    Side stand up
    In neutral
    Clutch in
    Battery is still connected with a strong connection to the wires

    Does the dash/clocks light up
    Does the fuel tank pump charge up
    Is there any clicking from the starter solinoid

    Just explain the symptoms as best you can, the decision needs to be theirs as to what is wrong.
    If they replace the solenoid and it still wont start, they will say you told them it needed a solenoid and you are responsible for the cost.

    It could be a simple solution as a stuck side stand or clutch switch

    Surely after a 40 min ride it would have put enough charge in it to start again

    Keith, do you have a Datatool alarm fitted....
    I had an issue on my old bike with the alarm fitted which meant the radio frequency around petrol stations prevented hte alarm dissarming...I had to push it up the road out of range and then I could de-activate the alarm

    try second gear...or even third - it has a lower torque/ratio which makes the engine easier to turn over
    Just be quick on the clutch if it does kick start
