The clicking noise you hear is the starter solenoid that switches power to the starter motor. The fact it is clicking indicates that everything up to the solenoid is working. A few things to check

  1. be sure that all connections to the battery and earth to the chassis are secure and free from corrosion
  2. check the terminations at the solenoid and starter motor to be sure that that they are ok. 
  3. If you can meter 12 volts getting to the starter, would point to the starter failing. May need the brushes replaced. 
To help you troubleshoot the problem, here is a Service Manual for the bike you can download for free. Just enter the 3 letters as requested at the top of the screen.  Happy to talk to you more about the problem. Thanks for using FixYa. Hope you get is sorted out.

Electric start doesnt seem to be working

If there's no noise at all your battery is either dead (jump start or new battery). If it clicks then there isn't enough charge in your battery to start the bike (charge battery or bump start)

I have an ATV 2000 Yamaha Kodiak YFM400AM(C). A few months ago after warming up it stalls when I PUT IT IN GEAR. I had to adjust choke idle up to engage into gear and go. It still does that and now when I...

For the first problem. Most likely the clutch is holding to tight and needs to be adjusted. Next problem. Check this first. Check the
connections on the battery post, make sure they are clean and tight. Next the carburetor may have flooded and hydro locked the piston. Make sure the battery is fully charged and the battery post are clean and tight. Retry starting the engine, if you only have the clicking sound, move the ATV to a location where gasoline cannot be ignited by a flame or spark including the sparkplug wire. Remove the sparkplug, move the sparkplug wire into a location where it is not close to ground so it will not create a spark. Try to crank the engine and see if it will spin, if it spins it will spew out gas if it was hydro locked. If the engine was hydro locked crank the engine a little more expelling as much gas as possible. Leave the spark plug out for a while so the remaining
gasoline in the cylinder will have time to evaporate. Clean and
reinstall the sparkplug. Try starting the engine, if the engine starts, reset the adjustments you made to the carburetor prior to having the dying problem. If the engine was not hydro locked and will not spin, and you only hear the clicking sound when trying to start the engine, you may have a problem with the starter or starter solenoid should it have a solenoid. I do think the engine will be hydro locked. Provided the battery, was fully charged the battery terminals were clean and the starter circuit is ok.

My 2002 kawasaki ninja 250 is having trouble starting. (electric start) At first it was just giving me this clicking sound kinda like when your car wont turn over and start. So I replaced the battery for...

The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

My BT1100 will not start. Battery is fully charged but pushing the start button I only get a click from under the seat. Have tried jump starting from another bike same result. Any ideas? Thanks

Normally I would say it was dirty terminals, but a jump start should by pass that. Because of the clicking sound, start with the terminals, then try to find your stater motor and try to identify where the sound is actually coming from (ie take the seat off). The solenoid is the next thing that makes that noise, and finally if all else fails, then your starter motor is cactus. I cannot find a manual for you, but have a look yourself, you might find a comparable one that will help you.

When i push the starter button, there is a clicking sound...engine tries to turn over but then stops and only the clicking sound remains. i recently replaced the battery. cranked right up after...

Charge the battery up fully and see if it will start. I am betting that the battery was dead. when you get it started you are going to want to test and see if the motor is charging the battery. Use a volt meter and have the battery charged fully and start the engine. With the charger off the battery take the volt meter and touch the + with the red lead and the - with the black lead. At idel you should have 13.6 volt of higher but no more than 14.2 Now rev the motor up to 3000 rpm and the volt meter should jump up as you rev it. If it does not then the reg/rec is bad or the stator went bad.

Honda CB 250 1998-will not start, just clicking, battery is ok

Hi, Your problem lies with the starter solenoid, although you maybe using a fully charged battery to jump it, it appears to be sticking or possibly faulty due to trying to start with poor battery.
The starter solenoid is usually located on or near the Battery compartment, it is cylindrical and has two heavy wires attached to it 1 goes to the starter motor the other to the battery. If you are carefull you can by pass the solenoid by touching the heavy wire going to the starter motor with the jumper lead. Make sure the jump battery is connected and both the NEGATIVE leads are well secure. Put the NEGATIVE lead from jump cable direct to a engine mount bolt or engine itself Not the battery.
There you are FixYa'd

Starting problem S&S 96 CI engine

sounds like the starter solonoid is not working properly if the batt cable got hot enough to smoke that says the batt, is ok and it is ok to jump with car, the solonoid is making the clicking noise and a real hot batt sometimes will make it work, the repair is simple and cheap if you are talented just get a solonoid repair kit three screws 5 min, and you are RIDEING.
