2001 VTR starting problems

hey guys im new to the site and have been reading some post but still no help. So my story is i bought a one off utv with a 01 rc51 motor in it and im trying to get it started but im having problems. I have the factory wire harness and guage cluster and hooked everything up using a wire diagram i found online. I bypassed the ignition switch with a toggle switch and got the guage cluster to work and its not throwing any errors. i have the factory start and kill switch hooked up and when i try and start it i hear a clicking noise from the starter relay. this is the first time im starting the motor. i checked the battery load tester and the battery is good. Im running a honda oddesey gel battery. NOT SURE WHERE TO START PLEASE HELP

THANKS

Greetings.

Check if the starter motor works off the bike with 12v applied

How about posting on an RC51 forum. There is nothing in common between the two bikes other than a few bolts.
