Question 1999 suzuki 300 king quad, starter won't turn over, just clicking noise

My 1999 suzuki 300 king quad makes a clicking sound when I press the starter button. I checked the voltage to the starter and I'm getting 12 volts; checked the wiring connections and their all tight; I even removed the starter and took it to a electrical shop and it works. re-installed the starter and it just makes that clicking sound.Can any one help? I don't know what else to do.

Sounds like a bad battery. Most likely its toast.

the relay/solenoid is clicking because the voltage is dropping when it supplies the starter with juice, causing the solenoid to open. it does that rapidly and repeatedly so you hear clicking.

make sure the battery is good, and clean the terminals also.

If it is one solid click each time you push the button than its not likely the battery. Put a 12 volt test light on the starter + terminal to see if the soliniod is passing voltage to the starter. If it is not then thats your problem. If you get a dimm light then its your battery. If the test light comes on bright then your starter needs brushes.

12 volts sitting is different than 12 volts cranking. Easiest way to rule out the battery is to boost it with your car.....

If you are getting 12 volts at the starter and you know the starter works then you have a locked engine. Can you start it with the pullstart?

Also, on my old 250, the starter seal would let oil in and flood the starter after a while, I would have to take it off, take it apart and dump the oil out, then clean it up and reassemble..Did they open the starter up and check the brushes as well?
