Default Lt 80 won't start

I put a brand new battery in it the last time we went riding. It ran fine for two days then it just wouldn't start anymore. I push the button and the relay behind the starter clicks but the motor does not turn over. The starter doesn't even click. I am trying to take the kids out this weekend any help would be appreciated.

There is a cutout button to stop the starter taking too much strain under the RH rear wheel arch. Press it in and try again. If it pops out again you may have the dreaded "cylinder full of fuel" problem, take the plug out and press the starter to find out, but disconnect the coil first or you could have a fire. (I've set two on fire doing this).

What year? The early models don't have the reset button...should be able to OHM the relay...LT80 would know off the top of his head...hopefully he chimes in...
