Testimonial: "Thanks for your help, I made a copy of it so I would have it on hand.. "
The battery nox is located behind the side cover, once removed two main wires should be visable, with what they call electrical eyes at the end of the wire. These wires are generally thicker than the rest in your electrical system, at least 4mm thick.
The posistive terminal on the battery connects to the red wire which should be running to your starter solinoid. The negative terminal on battery sometimes has more than one wirer connected to it depending on how many other mechanics have been fiddling with the bike, but generally these extra "earths" are fine, but your main Black wire runs down onto the motor.

Not sure what you mean by a slide moving, but it sounds like a carb based issue. Carb balancing needs to happen at idle, like most people know, but ALSO at 2500 or so, actuated by throttle control. Balancing at the higher speed makes your machine run tons better and last longer.

Honda did away with Reverse Gear in 1991 dropping 40lbs of weight off the bike. The years that Reverse was available on the Gold Wing were 1988 to 1990 and there is no way to add Reverse to later years.
