Battery is bad. Rapid clicking of starter selenoid is because battery does not have enough to hold spring down in selenoid when it sees the starter load. Battery only has a surface charge (nothing of power). Try a new battery or a jump. Should have lights first, then horn, then starter. If no lights, check all fuses.
Check all of your connections at the battery and solenoid and make sure that they are all CLEAN and tight,it also helps to use dielectric grease on all connections. Also,take off the switch housing where the starter button is,and look to see if the starter button connections are free of corrosion,and not broken....also use the grease on thses contacts as well.I am assuming that you have checked your battery for volts/amps/and load tested it,because the battery can show 13volts,but still no have enough amps to start the bike. Good Luck!
If it is clicking then either the batter is still too low, or the ground or hot wires are loose as wellas a possible bad starter selenoid. check the battery condition and wires for tightness before replacing the selenoid.
It sounds like you need a new battery. A bad battery will cause the starter to drag, and when it drains more, the solenoid will only click. Replace the battery and you should be running like new again.
check your battery it could be low it's under the rider seat. you want a nice 12 volt, if you can run the battery to your bike shop or parts store ask them to load test what this is, is the process of putting demand on a system or device and measuring its response. if it does not pass the battery will can still power the light but not start the bike. Now if it is dead then you need to fix the problem that caused the dead battery, after you get the battery charged or replaced start you bike and check your chargeing system. you should read 14.50 +/- .50 when you rev the bike. also while you are in there make sure the ground is good.
the battery is not your problem . it sound more like the starter motor giving you grief or alternator or regulator .
The electronic system on these are Bosch which are very sensitive to fluctuations of power .
Now when your starter draw power it really sucks power out of your battery and hopefully you have enough for the rest of the appliances .
the hard line of all this is that the battery may look good and hold the charge for a while but once the starter motor draw power to start the bike , you have very little power left to service the rest of power needed for the electronics . Make sure the alternator give you enough charge , test it while running , it should give you between 13.5 V to 14.8 V output or see if you accelerate the bike the headlight becomes brighter . If the light stays dole or dimms while giving a bit of gas , your alternator or regulator has a problem and will have to be tested and replaced .
have a look at all this and let me know how you go
its either a bad or drained battery or the starter selenoid. check your battery voltage using a tester or put it on a charger, if that doesnt solve your problem you should look at your starter selenoid
