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...
