New battery terminal melting? ?

Hello all, I replaced my battery yesterday in my 1999 Yamaha 1200 gp. It kept making a clicking noise and would not start. I checked the connections and noticed that the positive terminal was melted. Has anyone ever seen this before?? I'm not sure if I need a new starter solenoid or what could cause this?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
