A question for the expert

Hi. I recently got a 1992 gs500e as a project, but I'm trying to trace and electrical issue to the solenoid and starter, but have no idea where they are. Can you please help me out with this, the manual isn't very helpful.

Here's the finished rack and bags.







And the relocated turn signals,I will seal them up with silicone after I wire them back up.

Impressive.

Good job!, where did you end up getting the hard bags from? I might have to do something like this to my old GS750.
