Get a service manual.
there are two ways to go. both time consuming and of moderate difficulty.
My favorite is to remove the trunk, saddlebags, rear fender as a unit. Then the tire is in the open to work on. Not an easy job.

Sounds like the charging circuit is breaking down causing a strain on the alternator and making the motor struggle.If it picks up on the throttle then this may be the case.
Check all the earth connections as these have a habbit of corroding and causing a high resistance.

I have a few 1977 GL-1000 bikes.
I thought one was overheating but it turned out that the 9 volt regulator was fried and was putting 12 volts to the temperature gauge. Temperature was really OK. The fan switch is probably not lying

well at this point if you having a problem because the cable is connected i suggest you remove the starter and cable then work on getting the nut of on the work bench its only a small nut when you have it out on the work bench take a fine toothed hack saw and carefully cut almost through the nut then use a small chisel and small ball peen hammer to split it you dont want to damage the post if your going to rebuild it.

SOURCE: how do you remove the
Center stand the bike, place a jack under the motor but do not lift yet,unbolt calipers and hang with wires, loosen the four nuts and washers on the bottom of fork on nut looking end of axle(nut should turn but may not be tight), loosen nut on axle, now take off all nuts washers,and pull off two caps. Now slowly jack up motor to rock bike back on center stand, just enough to roll wheel out the front. When putting caps back on make sure arrows on the caps are pointed forward. Also use feeler gauge in tool kit (or eyeball it) to make sure discs are centered in caliper slots and not rubbing against calipers(before tightening eight nuts on fork bottom caps. Also make sure speedo gear is positioned correctly(not binding) and wheel spins freely before dropping wheel. It takes some fiddling around to put this front wheel back on. Minor adjustments are made by spinning the axle nut to adjust fork spacing.
