929RR won't start - rapid clicking under the seat

Hey guys, I need some help. So my '01 929RR with 13k miles had been running fine. I just installed an aftermarket LED taillight and that works properly. The first time I try to start the bike after installing the taillight the bike won't start. The battery has juice but I get a sound from under the seat that's a very rapid click / buzz sound whenever I try to start it.

Any clue as to what this is?

FYI I'm an electrical engineer and I'm fairly positive that I didn't do anything stupid when installing the taillight. The only thing "out of the ordinary" that I had to do was tap off of the front left turn signal hot because the wire in the back for that side had no signal.

Thanks,
Aaron

Sounds like flat battery to me.
Does the pump prime?

dead battery most likely...

when i worked as an electrician if the problem wasnt obvious always start at the source.

what they said, its the battery, but if you charge and it does it again then check the stator.
