The oil light should come on when you turn the key on, then go out when the engine starts. It is NOT an oil level light, it shows PRESSURE.

Your "click" is a bad/corroded connection on the starter terminals , battery terminals, low battery, bad wires, or a defective solenoid. Charge the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive. Remove the nuts holding the wires to the starter, clean all connections at the starter, frame and battery with a wire brush. Get them CLEAN!! Make sure the big cables are in good shape. If that doesn't fix it, you will need a solenoid. Maybe a starter and/or relay too.

I have had over 20 bikes over the last 44 years and never had a battery last longer than 4yrs. Im guessing the battery needed to be replaced anyway. Did you check to see if the switch on the kick stand safty was stuck? What is going on with the emergency kill switch, is it sticking? I would check the connections to the starter and the starter relay as well.

Hi
If your batt is no good replace it do not connect another in parallel
Batt shd have at least 12.6 volts with no load
If solenoid still does not click then it is the starter circuit that is suspect

If you are SURE the batt is good and holding a strong charge,,, and no dead cell(s) ??
Did you have the batt tested ?
FYI; Batteries only last an average of a few years..
IF that is not it - and IF the starter is binding a little to tightly - you can try a few starter shimms.. It will back the starter away from the flywheel slightly and not bind so hard against it..
Dont put too many shimms in at first.. Start off little by little & see if it corrects it..

that year you had both electric and kick start as standard future.

the right handle bar round thumb button is the starter and the run/kill rocker switch should be in run position to operate elec starter
