i use a jump box on mine most weekends when i wanna take it out, i hook the red to battery and black onto my exhaust and it fires right up no problem. is the clicking noise coming from the fuel pump behind the ignition? it should click for a few seconds then stop. if it stays on then you are not getting enough fuel outta the tank, change the fuel filter and if bike had been stored for winter get a good fuel system cleaner, additive type. if in USA get Berrymans B12, double dose get bike to run hopefully let it stand overnight and all should be fine. fingers crossed. if is is clicking from somewhere else like starter or a relay by the battery, check all the ground terminals you can find

at the bottom of the engine on the brake side of the bike, around the gearbox, there's a look through window with a low level and a high level marked on it, the oil should be between those after it's heated, check it hot, let the engine run 3 minutes or so, you have to put the bike up right to correctly check the oil level, which means you'll need a friend to hold the bike up while you look at the level through the window, or you can use a brick or something under the kick stand to keep the bike more level, just be careful. To change the oil, you'll need to get an oil filter and 2.1 quarts (I think that's the right amount, it's 2000 ml) of 10w - 40 oil and then all the stuff to catch the old oil and funnels and rags and an allen wrench, I think it'll be a 4mm allen wrench, but I'm not sure on that, check with your bike, there are 3 allen wrench bolts that are holding a panel onto your gear box, behind this panel is your oil filter. Drain oil first before taking this panel off and changing your filter, there's bolt on the kickstand side of the engine at the bottom of the bike, it's sideways, this is the drain plug for the oil, it'll probably be hot so careful unscrewing it, take it out and the oil will pour out, but it's sideways so it's going to be messy, use a funnel or something to direct the oil into a bucket or container of some kind. after oil is drained, replace drain plug, now use an allen wrench and take off the panel on your gear box, pull out the oil filter, discard of properly, put the new oil filter in. put the panel back on the gear box. on the same side there's a black plastic turn screw cap that's where the new 2.1 quarts of oil goes in there. if you don't change the filter the amount of oil you use is less, put the plastic cap back on and you're done.
I reccomend taking it to a mechanic to do this, but, I'm going to do mine myself, I think I'm just going to add oil to mine, it's low, I have a 2008 Suzuki S-40 which is the same thing as a Savage, with just different badging.
I am not a professional or anything so, I'm just reading from the owner's manual that came with my bike. best of luck.

Change oil and, filters regularly; lube the throttle cables and, all moving parts drain the fuel tank and, replace the fuel filter every year, or; when needed. never leave fuel in the bike when you store it without using "stabil" only check your ignition with a timing light get a maintenance schedule from the bike's manufacturer and, follow it.

SOURCE: Yamaha 650 Maxim Won't Turnover
Make sure the battery is fully charged and the battery connections are free of corrosion and tight. A fully charged 12 volt battery should read at least 13.25 volts. Also check the fuses, making sure each one is not 'blown' and is making proper electrical contact in the fuse box.
If the above items are correct but it still won't crank over with the electric starter, locate the starter solenoid and - using a large screwdriver - carefully touch it across the two large cable connections on the top. If the starter spins over, then you've got a bad starter solenoid. If you've got voltage to the top of the solenoid and the starter still doesn't spin, then you've got either a bad starter motor or a bad electrical connection going to it.

Testimonial: "I did the screwdriver trick and it started to turnover (I've probably got a dead/dying battery too) and it looks like its the solenoid. Thanks!"
Perusal of a parts manual shows the bulbs to be in sockets with wires hooked to them which press into the outer back of the speedometer head, remove the offending socket (the one on the top, the other 4 are the function lamps I previously mentioned) by gently pulling it outward, the bulb will slide out for replacement.
Have fun and good luck.
