Recently my Monster 696 has idled unusually on start up and a couple of days ago the bike wouldn't start up at all. I tendered the battery overnight and intended morning it started up but it wasn't easy. I rode to work and at the end of the day it wouldn't start up again. Tendered it overnight again but in the morning it wouldn't start up at all. It doesn't sound like it's trying to do anything - the lights work, dash comes on, starting in neutral, kickstand down, kill switch is not engaged, choke, no choke... I've replaced the battery with a brand new one and made sure it is fully charged. I push the starter button and it just makes a click noise and there are no turn over noises. I checked the ground wire for corrosion - no corrosion and the connections are all good. Does it sound like the starter is gone? I'm not sure what to try next. Please help!
