Question about 2001 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit
HAHAHA loud electrical ticking noise...I know all about that.
I would do one thing before any of the above with all due respect to David.
If you trust your battery is good, and it sounds like it is, then:
MAKE SURE the cables at the battery terminals are screwed on tight. I MEAN TIGHT. because if especially the positive is a bit loose, you would get that AWFUL noise and bike will not start while there is nothing wrong with anything. just loose connection. If that's not the case, then refer to what Dave has advised above.

Take your battery to a dealer or auto store and have it load tested. You may have a cracked cell in the battery so it has a full charge but it will not transfer the power. You could also take a car battery(12 volt) and hook it to the bike. If the bike acts normal on the when attached to the other battery, your bike battery is the culprit. If you jump the starter solenoid (short from the battery terminal to the starter terminal) and the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you have bad starter brushes. If there is anything else wrong the starter replace it with a complete new assembly , Honda does not sell the parts needed to fix the starter
