I went to use my bike this morning and when I went to start it all I got was a click from the solenoid. I have fully charged the battery and check the voltage on the battery and the solenoid and they both are fine I can only imagine its the starter motor not working?

I guess if you've got a jump lead you could try going direct from battery +ve to starter motor terminal and see if it turns over?
That would rule out all elec stuff between battery positive and starter.
If it doesn't start it's either battery, starter or earth connection on starter (ie where it bolts to engine block)
If it does, it's probably starter solenoid but could be any connection along the way.

Or if you've got the false tank off you could bridge the large contacts on the starter solenoid to see if it turns over.
That would test if the starter solenoid is faulty.

Good luck
Buzz.

I narrowed it down to the starter motor. I stripped it and blew all the dust out from the carbon brushes and wiped all the old grease off and applied new grease and its running fine now
