WR450 won't start!

i was riding my bike yesterday and it started cutting out. it restarted no problem a few times but then it wouldn't go. it was turning over so i thought that the battery was low or the plug was fouled. anyway i got home, put the battery on to charge and took the plug out. the plug was black so i cleaned it up. i put the bike back together now it won't even turn over.
i just get a really loud and repetitive clicking sound coming from the battery, air filter area. i have no idea what this means.
i'm dying to get back out on my bike please help!

the bike won't jump start either. i've had the seat off and the clicking is coming from the battery area but i'm not sure where the starter motor is to be honest so it could be that what's clicking.
thanks for all the help anyway!

Thought it was electrical also... it turned out to be that the float valve got stuck and was not letting any gas through the carb.
With all this shitty gas, 10% ethanol crap out there every bike my local shop has been working on is due to BAD GAS and CARB issues. Lucky for me I found my own problem and saved about 3 hours of labor charges.
IMO - make sure gas is flowing through the carb, then go back to checking the electrical stuff.
