Fourtrax 350 Starting Issues...

Hi guys, My dad has a 1986 Honda Fourtrax 350. For the last few times when using it, he has had to kickstart it. When he turns the key on and presses the starter button, it makes a click sound back by the battery... but won't turn the starter??
We replaced the battery and still no luck??? So i am at a loss.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Have you confirmed that the new battery is charged?

Also check to make sure that the battery terminals and cable connectors are clean and tight. Also check the connections at the other end of the battery cables (starter solenoid).

I believe I would jump directly to the starter pole and see if it will spin that way. If not pull it out and try again with a set of jumper cables.

The starter may be shot.
