If it has been sitting for a while I strongly recommend you remove the carburetors and clean them thoroughly, you will need to make sure you remove all the jets, especially the pilot jets because that is the smallest jet in the carb that will plug and it is often the one that will prevent the engine from starting.
Try using some WD40 in the back of the carbs when you try to start it after you clean the carbs. I don't like to recommend starting fluid because it is volatile and can easily catch on fire if the engine backfires.
I'd also recommend replacing the spark plugs as well. Make sure you have good fire. (turn the motor over with the plugs out and grounded on the head to make sure you can see the spark)
I also recommend pouring a small amount of Marvel Mystry oil down each spark plug hole to help "reseal" the rings. Remember that sitting is not your friend and you may have to get the rings back to life by using the special oil.
Just remember you need three basic elements to make an engine run:
Let me know if you have any further questions.

bike needs a new battery. battery is no longer capable of holding a full charge no matter what a trickle charger says. batteries wear out over time. expect 2-3 years from a motorcycle battery.
the clicking sound you hear is the relay flipping between open and close as it tries to get the right amount of amperage to turn the starter.

Change oil and, filters regularly; lube the throttle cables and, all moving parts drain the fuel tank and, replace the fuel filter every year, or; when needed. never leave fuel in the bike when you store it without using "stabil" only check your ignition with a timing light get a maintenance schedule from the bike's manufacturer and, follow it.
