Loose connection then,it sounds like relay is clicking. Was the battery load tested? Just because it's new doesn't mean it's good.

Remove, clean and re- torque The battery leads and the ground to the frame. If all the connections are clean and tight. That "new" battery has been sitting on the shelf for too long. Oh, verify the wires to the starter are clean and tight also.

Come to find out it was the pinion gear it was torn to shreds so now I have to replace the fly wheel and pinion gear

I'll bet the starter overrun clutch is bad. That's what causes the pinion gear to get chewed up. By 'flywheel' I assume you mean the clutch hub ring gear. J&P carries replacement ring gear and pinion sets.

The CV carbs self adjust for the most part. Use the factory settings and jets but bump the pilot jet up to a #46 - 48.
Also get yourself a H-D factory service manual.
