What year bike do you have?
What is the condition of your battery?
Any other electrical problems (lights flicker, idle problems)?

depending on your answers to DaBlue's questions, you might also want to install some new spark plugs

Do you regularly put your battery on a charger? If not your battery will become weak over time. A battery with low amperage may produce a clicking noise.
"- charge the battery if the motor fails to start or the starter relay makes a clicking noise

Because bike batteries are small, a lot of times they do not give advance warnings when they start to go bad. They can be fine one moment and dead the next. troubleshooting a battery can be difficult. Most people figure that just because a battery shows 12 volts on a multi-meter that it is fine. However, the resting voltage should not be below 12.2 volts."
