I decided to hook up some LED lights I hooked up the black wire to the negative of the battery. I couldn't reach positive of the battery so I hooked up the red wire to another spot on the bike. Now the bike won't start it turns on it just clicks and then turns off I don't know if I shorted something out. I unhooked all of the LED lights. The battery seems fine any ideas on what it could be? Did I short out the starter or the relay but the clicking noise is coming from front part of the bike. Help

Yes. The battery.
What exactly makes you think it is "fine" ?

You won't know that until you test it.

And check the main connection points at both ends of the main cables.
I bought a new battery. It's still not working. I am waiting on a solenoid part . Hopefully that works

It is foolish to try and fix something that you know nothing about by making wild guesses and just throwing parts and money at it..
Was your new battery fully charged ? Many times they are NOT.

At the very least you need a voltmeter to see where your power is being lost.
