Pull and turn lever dashboard light indicates R but when pressing start button nothing happened. Any one had similar problems. Help.

Is your kickstand down?
I believe it cancels reverse when it is down...

Have you had any issues with the start button not working right? It may be time to take it apart and clean it good.

If the starter button works for starter then it shouldn't be the button right?

If I am mistaken done please correct me. But I think the reverse lever operates Yet Another microswitch under the engine cover. Similar to the ones on the clutch and Brake levers. It could be stuck, dirty or bad.

If the reverse switch is bad you can get one from Cyclemax. $14 plus shipping
