Going to have to put my wing in the shop tomorrow. I was just getting it out of storage and put the battery in and tried to start it and all it did was click. Everything else works. When I push the starter button it goes dead and click. I took the battery to Auto Zone and had it tested and it showed a bad battery so I bought a new one and had it charged. Did the same thing. Also just before I stored it last winter I had tried to upgrade my GPS. I followed all the instructions and it says that it cant unlock the GPS. Like I said it going in the shop tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas.

It could be the starter button needs a real good clean with electrical cleaner.
The starter solinoid could be stuck. Hook up a wire to both sides of the solinoid, turn the key on then short out the two wires. The starter should kick in.

Like Eric said, starter Solenoids have been known to get stuck. You might try giving a tap with a wrench, I've seen that work. However if that's it replace it.

Welcome back. Sure sorry you have to take it into the shop. Hope it's an easy fix and you get back on the road.
