Do you have a volt meter? Start by measuring the voltage on the battery terminals with the bike not running. A fully charged battery should read around 13 to 13.5 volts. Then while monitoring the battery voltage, hit the starter button. If the battery voltage drops substantially, you need a battery. If it stays around 12 volts or so, move next to the solenoid using the same technique. Check the battery side of the solenoid and then the starter side. It's possible you only have a loose or corroded connector.
