"Ticking" sound when trying to start the 919?

So...I was riding it today. It was hot as blazes, not that that should make a hill a beans but....

So when I parked her, I forgot something and went to turn it back on and "tickkkkk....tickkk...tickey tick" sound came from the starter button when I went to get her started again.
I'm trying to see if it's the battery. I don't think it is. I'm going to put her on the trickle charger and see if she starts tomorrow.

Any suggestions?

soleniod?

Check connections first, especially grounds. How old is the battery? What type?

FWIW, I don't remember hearing of many if any starter solenoids going bad.

Sounds like a bad power connection or the battery is toast.

ok, so had the 919 on the battery tender for a better part of today.
Came back, turned key, bike started.
I do recall the seller telling me that she may need a new battery at some point. He told me if I kept it on the tender I'd be fine but at some point invest in a good battery so thats where I be headed tomorrow......to look for a good battery.

Any suggestions? I'm partial to YUSA but I'm up for any suggestions within economical reason.

thanks all.
seems the "bat-tree" is indeed toast.

When i bought my bike the previous owner put in a delran battery tender lithium iron battery. I can say that i'm never going back to lead acid batteries. You save a lot of weight and you don't have to worry about spills. You will have to charge it and the charger has to be specific to that battery. Personally, i'd go with a shorai lithium battery. When my POS yuasa battery dies on my grom i'll be getting a shorai battery. They are pricier but they are worth it IMO.

Just ride!

I'm going to eventually invest in a better battery but for now I'll continue to swap out for a standard YUASA type battery. thanks, it was indeed the battery that went craps on me.
