If the relay clicks it is pulling down but not necessarily connecting the contacts so take the relay out and check that it is completing the circuit when it clicks on.

System relay check

Hi Anonymous, just replace it temporarily with any other relay/starter/brake for a fuel pump check. Good luck.

My 2006 road king Harley won't start after riding over a curb

You didn't describe the "click"

A series of rapid clicks means a low battery, or a bad (usually ground) connection, like if you crunched/abraded a wire along the lower frame when you drive over a curb.

A single, loud click indicates its a bad starter relay, about a $12 part:

2007 Road King Classic. When start switch depressed mothing happens, not even starter click. Battery good, no fuses blown, all electrical works except start

I'd guess either the "Run/Start" switch in in the "stop" position, (don't laugh, i've done it myself), you have a security system problem, or your starter relay is bad. The relay is a one cube looking device that acts a control circuitry for your starter. Usually they are under the seat but Harley has started moving things around so much lately that I can't keep up with them. It is going to be back near your starter somewhere. When you find it, turn the switch on and depress the start button. You should feel a noticable "click" if you are holding onto the relay. Now, look at the end of your starter from the right side of the bike. You'll see the end plate (pentagon shaped plate with three screws) with a small wire plugged into a connector at the top of the plate. Disconnect the wire and stick a test light or a volt meter into the wire side of the plug, not the starter side. Turn on the switch and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should show battery voltage. If it doesn't, you relay could be bad. Almost any auto parts store should have one.

The head lights on my 2004 Roadking Classic dim and them brighten up while in am riding

The relay contacts get carbon (or burn away) on them from arching and cause a high resistance contact ,thus the dim and not working tach ,lights. Check your grounds, and connections for shorts.
