Hadn't started my 2014 1000x in a few months and went to start it and the battery was dead. Put in a new battery and now the solenoid just clicks. Is the solenoid bad as well?

You might try tapping on it or jumping across the two posts to “jolt” it if it’s stuck. The solenoids on these cats are very prone to water infiltration which leads to the contacts sticking inside.

Jumping across the solenoid it starts just fine. Took it out and cleaned everything and still no good. Ordered a new one

The two halves are press fit on the solenoid, seal them with some caulking when new to keep water out.
