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.

I have a 1978 honda goldwing gl1000 motor when i turn on the fog lamp motor trys to die


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.
