Sounds like your new battery isn't charged. I doubt you needed to replace the old one, it just needed to be recharged.

Also, make sure you aren't making any simple mistakes (kill switch on, trying to start in gear, ect)

the clicking noise is your spark plugs

you need to listen for 3 important sounds on a start up.
1. fuel pump whine when you hit the ignition switch
2. crank when you hit the starter button
3. spark plugs clicking

you have the clicking. do you have the other 2?

First thing first, charge your new battery.

Did you try to charge your old battery before you bought a new one?

BTW how much did your new battery run you from the dealer?

I bet he got ripped! haha...

but yea, charge your old battery, and then start the bike. Remember, majority of sport bikes don't charge the battery when sitting at a stop, only above a certain RPM will the charging system start.
