Hi, my 2011 sprint GT 1050 has been starting for 6 months and now will not crank or only for a second or two. I have connected 12v to the starter side of the solenoid to eliminate the solenoid hand then I do not need to hold the clutch lever in to turn the engine. I have taken the plugs out to reduce compression and the engine turns over but as soon as I install one plug the engine hardly cranks. For 12 v I am using a car new battery and jump leads to ensure maximum amps but that does not help even with the plugs removed. The jump cables to get hot so it's using slot of amps even with only one plug fitted

Removed the starter and it turns fast off the bike.

Impedance from the 12v to earth is less than an amp but that is the limit of my multimeter.

Bike had no starter issue before being left in the garage so reluctant to replace as I am not sure it's the issue but would be happy to take advise from those more knowledgeable than me on what to do next.
