assure the second cable from the black lead is connected to the block....clean the stud with a wirebrush this might be the thing stoppin' all that amperage (60) or so amps from getting thru~....also both posts and clamps get them clean...use only water...no bS~ (baking soda)~ put it back with restored connections assuming that the battery is newer then TEN and tests at 12.5 volts....get a new one if this is not the case~

I would check all battery, solenoid and starter connections. Also check frame/motor ground connections. If all these look good and still doing the same thing then I would look into replacing solenoid and starter.
