Question about 2007 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
Fuel is full and battery is always on a trickle charger,it died while shifting,started fine then just died ,now only one click when I try to start it click sounds like it's coming from left side by the starter
"only one click when I try to start it"
Sounds like a bad starter relay, about a $10-$25 part.

SOURCE: Won't start?
With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness

If I understand the question, the battery is 12 volts, but if U put a volt meter on it, it should read at least 12.5 if its good. When U fire up the bike, it should go up to about 13 + volts. Often, a new battery needs to be charged.

Have you tried to bypass the starter button/switch? Use a heavy jumper wire to go between the starter terminal and the positive battery terminal. Turn the key to "On" position, make sure "Run/Off" switch is turn on. Make sure bike is in neutral. I've started guys bikes with coat hangers before when they lost had trouble with the starter button. If the bike starter turns over, you'll at least have a place to start looking for the issue. Also you said you checked the battery, what was the voltage?
