Same problem here ... 2008 C90T ... dealer no help ... in 3rd or 4th, ignition off, force it to roll backwards until you hear the piston shift ... should start then. Told it's the rear piston stopping at or near top dead center, but also told adjust the decompression will "solve" the issue; anyway, a rolling forward-start in 4th will work, too, otherwise try rolling the bike backwards until you hear, and you will know when the piston moves and then it will start.

I'd take my battery to an automotive parts store and have it tested. They'll usually do this free of charge. If bad, replace the battery. The best battery for the money today is Harley's GasMat battery. They don't get any better for the price. Make sure all your connections are tight and clean. This will probably fix your problem.
The chattering and the hot cables sounds like you were not getting enough voltage. You starter is designed to run on 12 DC. Since it's a motor, if the voltage drops, it will pull more current to make up for the low voltage and try to run. The enormous amount of voltage it draws made the cables run hot. The problem is that if the cables got that hot, you can imagine how hot the small wires in the starter got. So, you may be looking at a starter but I'd do one thing at a time. No need to waste time and money if you don't need to. If the battery doesn' fix it, go with the starter.

Check for an in-line fuse for the started solenoid. Will the starter turn if you take a jump to the solenoid pull-in terminal?
