    My bike is clicking when I try to start it. It has battery so I am thinking spark plugs/wire could cause it. Am I right or is there something I can do? 1999 sportster 883 xlh

    Just because it has a battery doesn't mean it has a GOOD battery. Remove the battery and have it load tested.

    You could REMOVE the plug wires and plugs and it should still crank without you heaing the solenoid clicking.
