Is voltage going to the starter from the solenoid? If the solenoid just clicks,but has power to the starter,possible a starter is bad. If the starter is turning over,then could be a worn starter clutch not engaging.https://www.yamahapartshouse.com/oem...starter-clutch

Thank you for your reply and suggestions.
Turns out that my battery charger/emergency starter isn't working properly. I jump it from my tractor and it started immediately.
Thank you

Check that the battery is receiving around 14 volts from the regulator at an idle or a little above.If it's charging ok,you may need to have the battery load tested if it's getting weak not holding a full charge.
