All of the above ok , then the battery is dead, cables loose or something preventing it from getting full power from battery. Generally solenoid clicking is either a bad solenoid or weak battery.

What does b mean
B refers to battery , lighting and such areas. You say it clicks but don't start. Can you tell if the starter itself is turning when you hit the start button. If in fact it is, it could be the starter limiter not turning the engine over.

It's under the altenator cover. It connects between the starter and the sprague gear on the crank. Inside is a mini clutch pack that may or may not be slipping and not turning the engine over. Generally they will turn the engine but at a really slow rpm but not enough to start it. You need to verify the starter is actually turning before diving into that. When you hook up a VOM, do you get power at the starter terminal when you hit the start button? If so, it could be the starter itself , as in a dead spot or brushes pooched. Check for voltage at the starter terminal first and if possible and you own a test instrument, check amp draw with an induction clamp. Good middle point to work forward or backward from the starter itself.

I had a similar problem found out through Harley that it was the Factory Alarm. I had it disconnected and all was fine!

did you remove and clean the copper mounting tab on front head that the earth cable connects to.
