Clean and tighten all battery connections. Also clean and tighten the negative connection on the frame and motor.

they are as tight as they will go

Had same problem, it was the starter. It was an intermittent problem, pulled starter 1st time and it tested fine, so I changed battery as it was i bit weak. Cranked fine then stopped, so I contacted positive battery post direct to starter cable, nothing but a big spark. Pulled starter again and it tested bad.
