Starter issues

I have always had issues with clicking with the starter and it doesn't look like it's going to turn over but ultimately does, and I replaced the battery. I'm of the opinion that the starter solenoid's going. how would I check? I have checked all the connections and they look good. I don't know if I really want to pay for a new starter motor can anybody give me some advice on how I would know it is the starter?

Same boat my friend. I remember my Sportster and a Softail I had in the past doing the same dang thing too.

my '03 XB had a relay failure. A good investment is a factory service manual.
