Need Help with this box thing! Bike won't start!

Hi. My bike won't start! At first, it was making a duck-like noise from this box (pictured). Then, all I did was take out the two fuses in this box, and now it's not making the noise. I can just hear a light click when I try to start the bike. Any suggestions? As always, very much appreciated. - Zach

Check you battery, sound like its low on the volts. once the bike starts check the voltage at the battery at 4k rom and you should see somewhere arond 14 volts, if not your charging system may need inspecting.

That box thing is your solenoid, odds are it's not getting enough juice. Battery may need to be replaced simply because it's old.
