Re: 1978 GL1000 Compression test

The starter doesn’t turn at all. Took it apart and found that many connections had been soldered many times. Cleaned them and did some more soldering, but have tried four time and all have failed

1978 GL1000 Compression test

I have a 78 GL1000 with the engine off the frame and the starter is bad. Is it possible to do a compression test? And how would I do it without a new starter? Thanks
