Exclamation Bike won't start! Electrical clicking sound when i press start button

Bike won't start! Electrical clicking sound when i press start button comes from left hand side of fairing. From what i can tell its coming from the starter solenoid? Bike almost fired on one occasion but since then many tries and it will not do a thing just the clicking noise when i hit the fire button. Battery has good charge. Please help bike is stuck outside at a friends house with a tarp over it untill i can get up there and get it on the ute!

Sorry I'm of no help....

I know you said the battery is okay but what about the connections to the battery?
Try cleaning then up.

Try taking off the starter solenoid and cleaning up the terminals on that too.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!
