The starter may have burned up when the relay stuck. Take it apart and see what it looks like inside.

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

The starter should turn in one direction. If it does not I would suspect the internals have a problem. Only stripping it will determine what that is.

The starter on the gl1500 doesn't turn easily by hand if that is what you mean, there is a lot of resistance to get it turning by hand.

Forgot to ask if you tried connecting the starter to a battery and test it. The body of the starter should be held against the - post of the battery and a cable attached to the battery + should be tipped against the starters power terminal. If it doesn't spin over then you will have to pull it apart.
