"Normally" this indicates a starter switch in need of cleaning, but it could also mean
-battery terminals that need to be cleaned and shined
-the terminals on the starter motor cleaned and shined
-the major ground connection under the seat cleaned and shined.

Since all of the latter items are easier and more likely to solve the problem I would do those cleaning first. If the problem persist you will have to take apart the starter switch housing and cleaning the switch contacts.

It also wouldn't hurt to clean the fuse terminals too.
