Can be a loose / bad connection somewhere in the high current starter circuit, or a flat battery.
Did it start ok a few times when you put in the new battery?
Yes >> not charging the battery (or not charged when fitted).
No >> Bad connection between battery and frame or between battery and main ignition key power connection point (usually to a fuse).
The cause of solenoid clicking is the voltage dropping dramatically when the starter current begins to flow, usually a flat battery or a loose or dirty connection in the starter current circuit (will generate heat when clicking which can help you find it).

SOURCE: Starter or solinoid?

I never heard of a starter solonoid coming with shims. Did you replace the starter or starter solonoid?
What engine do you have?

SOURCE: bike makes a clicking noise when i try to start it

Your starter isn't getting enough power. Try checking your water levels in the battery and charging it with a trickle charger. Good Luck!

Triple check your battery cables on the battery end .. esp the positive + side.. Side post batteries are notorius for that

SOURCE: no electrical power after replacing battery

I've had similar problems with my cars, and everytime it was a bad ground or power wire, or corrosion on the terminals. Get a wire brush and clean both battery connecters..even a little corrosion can cause a no power situation. If you have a test light, connect the ground of the test light to the negative cable of the battery and touch light to the positive cable...if the test light doesn't light up, then you have a break or lose connection in your ground wire. Trace the battery ground to the engine block and clean that also...the smallest thing can interupt power...hope this helps..

Why wont Kymco MXU 250 start? just a loud high pitched noise is heard


Geez dont keep spending money if your not sure. It sounds like your starter is not throwing in far enough to engage with the ring gear. Please do your hip pocket a favor and get an auto technician to check it before buying a new starter as well. You can also remove the starter and check the gear to make sure its not worn as some are plastic.
