These are known for starter problems... The clicking you hear is the relay but the bendix is locked up put it in about 3rd gear and rock it hard forward and back. Bendix may release. Make sure battery is good. As I said before these bike are well known for their starter problem and even after having it fixed by a dealer problem seems to show back up after a very short time. Good Luck!

Either, your terminals are dirty, your battery has died or your starter motor has died. Having a manual would help, just Google it and hunt around, you should be able to find a freebie. But you need to get it started and to an auto-electrician, he will diagnose your problem in seconds, and generally it is a freebie.

The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

sounds like your battery is dead. You may have enough volts to turn on lights, but not enough amps to turn the starter motor. put a volt meter on the battery and see how far the volts drop when you try to start. my guess is too low. Replace the battery, or have it tested; it probably wont take a charge.

When I had my VL 125 i got this problem after a very cold winter, I jumped the bike and ended up splitting the second ignition coil which fed back into and blew the DCI unit, wasn't cheap to have repaired but cheaper than new.
Firstly upgrade your plugs to iridium ones, they never let me down.
Secondly trickle charge your battery for 24-48 hours
Thirdly if still the same try bump starting bike with a good run up in 2nd gear as it may be a stuck starter motor.
The starter motors on these are known for their issues and again ain't cheap for new but if you know a good engineer, there are some ways of modding other starter motors to use as a replacement.
