how to get to relays for starter gl 1800

Ok my 2005 1800 just clicks when i push the start button.
I have checked and replaced the battery.
sometimes when I rock it in gear it will start but started sounds slow.
before i tear it down to replace the started i want to change out the relays A and B with a pair of known good ones.
I need simple advise how to loosen the bag to get to the relays and do I need to remove the seat.

The relays are just to the right of the battery. Yes you have to remove the seat, the rear center panel and 2 bolts in the bottom of the left bag, 1 bolt in the upper rear, inside, & 1 at the top front, under the lip of the seat.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

thanks Dave yes I have problems with my 2005 yellow wing 58000 miles I will win this battle just takes some time.

Nice ride my second bike is a 2010 1800 with abs/navi/ and a bunch of other stuff.20000 miles
It is going to the local indy mechanic/gw guru. to replace fork seals and disable anti dive.
I love the way this bike rides and the incredible power it has.

third bike is a 2014 Street glide with just 16k miles
I ride with patriot Guard Riders and everyone has a Harley ,
My new plan is to shock them with my yellow Goldwing.

I knew as soon as i twisted the throttle on the 2010 that the Harley had to go.

Thanks for your response many nice riders here .

thanks De I had a 1989 gl 1500 it was a work of art perfect in every way brandy wine color had just 24000 miles sold it two years ago to a local guy for 4500.00
he got cancer right after I sold it and wanted to sell it back to me for much less but I had already bought an 1800
I see it still listed for 4500.00
I often think I should have bought it back.

thanks for the warm welcome

fix it right
