Welcome aboard, Nola.
I second ubertalldude's comments about the choke and idle settings. I don't touch the idle knob on the left side except maybe once a year.

Can you tell where the click is coming from? The relay in junction box on the left side or the solenoid on the right?

I'm 145 lb, so I can't put a lot of weight on the foot lever.

I stand to the left of the bike, face the handlebars, put my right foot on the lever, right hand under the frame, and then basically...
