So i took my bike apart to do all the goodies powdercoat,paint,belts valves ect. I put it back together the first time with my old battery it cranks and then dead battery and it was charged. The next day bought a new bat. from dealer and it just clicks nothing? could it be the starter soliniod?

Could be. Easiest way to test if its the starter solenoid is to jump the contacts on the solenoid with a screw driver or what have you. If the engine turns over with the points jumped then it's the solenoid. If it doesn't then we move on to the next step in diagnosing.

Video will indicate a flat battery - did you charge the new one? What reading are you getting across the terminals with a multimeter?


Possible bad battery/ground connection as already mentioned, check and clean ALL starter connections from battery ground to engine, battery + to starter. ;)
