Hello everyone I’m having an issue where when I press the starter to try and start the bike nothing happens. I’m getting a click every now and then from my starter relay (it’s new) but nothing else is happening. Wondering if it could be a ignition thing or starter motor. I have banged the starter motor and nothing. It’s like the bike is dead. All the lights come on and battery is good. But can’t get any cranks or anything.

Your battery is questionable. It might be able to push enough power for the lights, but not to turn the engine. Perform a load test, of take it to a battery shop or auto parts store. They'll often test it for free.
Thanks for the info, I’ve ordered one of those Anti gravity gel batteries but it’s not coming for a bit so I’ll try and figure out something for the time being. Thanks again.
