Okay, i think there are some big no no's here but let me throw this out. i have mentioned how much i love my old 1983 Goldwing. The exhaust system needs work as well as some carb work. i 've had to keep in on a battery charger to get it started every time. Lately even that doesn't work and my buddy has used a car to jump start the old gal. I read that this was a no no so we stopped this practice however, now the old girl will not start no matter what method is used. We can push start it and it runs pretty well. However, i am concerned that now, even if a car is used, it isn't turn the engine over to start. also, once you drive it, the starter will turn over but VERY slowly and then it will give it up. Have we ruined the starter by using a car to start it the last few times or could this still be just a really dead battery? I also noticed that the positive cable that runs from the + side to the relay is pretty corroded even under the insulation. Thoughts?
