Went to the bike after letting it sit for a month or so -- expected the battery to be dead; it was almost dead... turned over easy; but didn't start -- put the charger on for about 20 minutes and then it started up no problem.

Today is a different story...today the starter barely turns over. it's real slow; sounds like a drain; then click-click-click.

I put the bike in 6th gear and turned the wheel by hand -- turned easily enough so the engine isn't seized.

is there a way to test the starter "here at home" or should I take it to Napa or some place to have it bench tested?

(or is there something else to look for? All the connectors look clean... look at least...)

Thanks
