I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter unless the starter parts are available from the manufacturer. Check your dealer to see what parts are available for your starter.

Check your kill switch, get a hair dryer and blow dry where the switch is, its simple but worth a try.

My 02 Bonneville America will not start, all i get is a rapid clicking sound coming from around the right hand side of the seat?

That is the sound of not enough voltage from your battery. Sounds like a case you need replace your battery. Try to jump start it from another battery if you can just to be sure.

Clunk from engine/crankcase area

Try at stationary under heavy load with clutch to isolate, sounds serious, I'd check all transmission connections are right before riding again.
