Dun know abt bike, but for cars, if the jumper method didn't work the first time when trying to start (jumper cables connected to another car, engine running), I would leave the cables on, and wait 2 minutes to get the battery a little charged up first. Then, the 2nd attempt would normally start up the car, else the battery is toast. A little revving on the good car would ensure sufficient current during the start attempt.
The 'clickclickclick' sound is from an underpowered battery or power source, from a couple of experiences I had. The standard diagnostics of checking of the head lamp would turn on brightly in order to indicate a good charged up battery is flawed and is not 100% true at times (depending on car make and models). I had a done a couple of these tests on 2 cars, an Audi 5000S and a Honda City, both headlamps shone brightly but gave the 'clickclickclick' sound when turning the engine. But they started after jumpering them. Well, that's my learning.
