Nothing when turn key. Bought new battery and fully charged, installed, still nothing.
The "ticking" you hear is probably the solenoid trying to "connect"
The solenoid is the round thing that is the first thing the large red cable from the battery runs to. There are more wires connected to the solenoid..the TWO big ones carry the power from the battery and then jump it to the BIG cable that goes directly to the starter. You can CAREFULLY "jump" the two big connectors ON the solenoid with a screwdriver ( CAREFUL - SPARKS WILL FLY!). If the motor turns over you have a bad solenoid. Key does not have to be on, you just want the motor to turn over. NO open fuel sources!! SPARKS WILL FLY WHEN YOU JUMP.
Try this and repost, let me know.

2001 500 HO is stuck in High Forward gear
If the shocks are worn out, get off the machine and lift up on the back rack. This takes up the slop between the shifter box and the transmission, and usually allows me to shift. I also had an issue with the thin steel plate behind the shifter box. Got a crack in the top , so it was flexing, creating more slop. Welded it shut, good as new.
