Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? The clicking is a sign of low voltage to the start. But, if you were doing 30 and came to a dead stop there is a slight possibility there might be water in the cylinders as well. Do you have a voltmeter and do you know how to take basic voltage measurements for the voltage part of this?

My original question stated that the reason for the sudden stop was that the kill switch was activated when I stood up and the link attached to my vest pulled it to stop. That caused the engine shutdown. Then when switch was reset I could not start and the clicking happened.
