I had parked my 2015 reeper epic 4 and I sat for a couple weeks. Now going to take her out for a ride and nothing happens just click click. Charged battery checked voltage and plenty of fuel. Is there a safety I'm missing maybe ? It is basically brand new few years old but only 800 miles.

I and a few others have had problems with low voltage/amps delivered to the starter solenoid due to what we believe is to much resistance in the trigger wire. The fix was wiring a fused relay from the positive post of the battery to the solenoid and using the ignition trigger wire to switch the relay. Use the search tool to find threads or postings on this. I believe crash61 posted on this. Good luck.
I would second double checking the battery as well as the battery connections. If the battery has been run low enough it can damage the battery internally and thus will seem to take a charge, but not enough to start.
I've addressed the wont start click , click issue once before but maybe this will help you. This seems to be a common problem and I have it happen quite often with my 2012 reeper. A simple and effective fix is to install a starter button. You can leave all the wiring that's in place now as is. Simply run a wire, preferably 12 ga. from a good source, I went off the battery, to the starter button you'll mount on the dash. From the starter button to the starter solenoid. That's it. When the key goes click click , which it will from time to time , simply push the starter button, which never fails.

Silverbullet Make a mod change to a push button.Like all new cars have push button.But the guys gave you good information.Battery test is good battery may show 12,5 volt but battery doesnt have amps to start.just change your batter in you other vehicle.
