My
I tend to disagree about the ignition switch failure. When it fails, NOTHING works. No headlight, no dash indicators and no starter relay "clicking".
I would lean more toward dirty battery cable connections or bad failing battery.

I had a very similar experience recently. The buzzing / clicking solenoid / starter relay. At our local maintenance day, we did a lot of diagnosing. What it finally came down to was my 4 month old battery. It has been replaced and no problems since.

I suggest removing the battery and taking it to a dealer for load testing. Charge it fully first, then let them test it. That was my plan, but when I took it to where I'd bought it, and asked them to test it, they simply replaced the battery. There were lots of batteries being returned, so dead batteries are common, even when new.

One of the dealers here had offered to load test it for me, but I couldn't make it there until next Thursday and wanted to ride this Sunday. So I gave in to the fast answer rather than having it tested. FWIW, the dealer said that a surprising number of brand new batteries fail. And when they do, he sees symptoms like you describe.

Good luck!

Dave
