Just clicks, not starting - SOLVED

So yesterday I went for a ride and at some point I stopped and turned the engine off. Shortly after I tried to start it again and there was a click but the starter didn't activate. I have PC5 installed (in air box) so I suspected there might be a bad connection or something like that so I checked the wires and then it started. Later that day same thing happened twice. Today, same thing. It just clicked so I push started it so I could get home and investigate the problem. The reason for this clicking and not starting was an oxidated/drty contact on right side of starter solenoid which was also a bit louse it either got louse over time or was not torqued down properly right from the beginning. That explains why sometimes did start, sometimes didn't and sometimes did after I moved the cables around. I've cleaned that contact with sanding paper and now it starts with no problem. Check the video for visual details.
