I have video of my problem with starting

I replaced the starter clutch because the bike would only make a whirring noise when pressing the start button. Things seem to be turning, but not very well. I have fully charged the rather new battery. Here's the video of what happens when I try to start it.

What is the voltage at the starter when you try to start? My guess is that your battery is toast. There isn't enough juice to even turn the motor over. Either that or the starter needs to be cleaned out.

ok, so during the starter clutch replacement, I rebuilt the starter, cleaned all the contacts I could and put some grease inside. I have about 4.5 volts at the starter under load.

If your battery is fully charged then its had it. Have it load tested and I think you will see what I mean.

I hope I never have to do it.. But fortunately there are lots of videos that can guide me through it should I have to.

I agree!! Under 10V under load and the battery is shot.....under 5V it's totally gone.

As others have said, this looks like your battery is kaput.

battery failed load test. I got a new battery. Same exact behavior. I didn't even film it because the same exact thing is happening.
