Sounds like you have a bad connection at the battery. Clean the connections at the battery. If this does not fix you may have a bad battery. You can take the battery out and it should still start with the pull rope. If it were the starter you probably would her a grinding noise. the clicking is probably the starter solenoid. With a weak battery all you will hear is a clicking sound under the seat.
Check the starter positive post for 12v when you push the starter button .. Sounds like brush & brush holder ..
