I wish, but it is a brand new battery (although I might take it to get tested still). The GL1000 starters have a history with this apparently. There are rebuild instructions and videos, so.... Not a real hard job, just that it has to be on the kickstand to remove/install so the cog stays in the chain and doesn't fall into the motor. I've got the wheels back on it temporarily, and I'll have the wife steady it for me while I jack it up a bit to pull the furniture dolly out from under it. I'm just pumped that I got a few pops out of it! I've never heard it run, and I've owned it for over five years.Brodie said:Projects wouldn't be a challenge without the issues. Pity the battery didn't sort it out. I wonder if the charged battery was just a bit to far gone to give the amps needed to turn the motor around.
