Rapid clicking when key is turned to start? The starter solenoid and battery are below the seat. Is this where the clicking is coming from? If it is, the battery is dead, or the cables are bad. Rapid clicking from th solenoid is sign of low voltage.

do you have voltmeter to test voltages? What does battery read?
