New battery charged? Voltage on the new battery?

Normally, clicking from the solenoid with no starting is either a bad battery, discharged battery, or bad battery connection. It can be a bad solenoid or bad starter, but power is a more common problem.

If you are not sure of the charge status of the new battery, try jump starting it. I did this using my riding mower to jump my 2008 sportman. Started right up. Changed the battery and all is good.

On a side note, buddy of mine got a "new/charged" battery for his Yamaha from the dealer. When he got it home it would not turn his bike over. He noticed it had no acid in it yet. So much for them charging it for him...

You can put a screw driver between the two points on the seloined and then the starter should turn over.if the starter does work then that tells you that the seloined is bad, If not then its more than likely the starter.

Was the old battery load tested before replacing? About the only batteries that come close to 100% are the gel batteries. If you got the direct replacement acid based battery, they never get to 100% charged on their own when new. They usually have enough juice to get the machine going one time, otherwise, they need the help of a battery charger to top them off when they're new. The guy was right.

As said above me, try jumping the solenoid.
