pls pls help
im lucky enough to own a 1098.it is my pride and joy.unfortunately i went to start it today.i turned key.everything lite up as per normal.i pressed the starter and i can hear a single click then the engine caution light appears.(which for some reason puts the wind right up me).
the battery is showing 10.8v
like in a car if there's a bad earth from starter motor u turn the key and there is a clunk.so i ran a earth from batt to engine a the same thing happens.
iv a 2008 1098s with full termis and ecu,i fitted decabel killers for a recent track day and left them in.could i have damaged something internally.
im no machanic but will take any advice anyone could give me
thanks

Thanks joeii and la rossa for your quick response
Im fairly sure the battery is fine.iv recharged it.
I wouldn't av a clue how to test starter solinoid but it does sound like a solinoid click.
Yes there was a recall and my bike was only done about two months ago.i think it was for the rectifier or something in that region.ducati were a bit vaque on what they actually replaced.
Because my headlights were flashing on and off but that problems been cine since recall.
