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.

Hi there fellow XVS dragstar owner!
I had the same problem before. It is usually caused by the wrong jets installed. have it Replaced with the standard jets that came with it... this will solve the problem on acceleration. Make sure the fuel and air mixture knob is set to 2.5 turns-out from full close. clean the spark plugs.. better, replace it with a new one to ensure clean burning of fuel. also, use unleaded gas. this burns better.
hope this helps

the best battery replacement for your bike would be a low-maintenance sealed battery. Sealed types last longer but they are expensive. XVS650 is a fit but make sure you specify if its either a custom or a classic, they get confused by these.
I"d recommend the linbar by lindby customs for the engine guard. THey're practical.
Hope this helps,
