    Try giving the bike a good shake.

    If it's clicking like something's slipping or a bit like a ratchet when you try and start it, that means that your battery isn't powerful enough to turn over the engine.
    You'll have to bump-start the bike and run it for 20-30mins to recharge the battery.
    If it's no better after running the bike for a while you'll just have to buy a new battery.

    Hope i've got the right idea from what you said.

    Good luck

    Make sure the connections to the battery terminals are good and tight.
