Yes, that method of going across the poles bypasses most everything, now move on to the wiring and freshen up all major connections, battery leads, solenoid, starter, etc.... and don't forget the neative/ground wires, start at the battery and just make sure that ground is good, that's the major one as far as starting goes, then just look around for the others, they are easy to spot, if I remember correctly the color code should be black with a yellow stripe depending on the year of your bike, also might as well have the battery checked, places like Advanced Auto, AutoZone, NAPA will check batteries for free, with a load tester, while it may be a new battery I have gotten new bad ones in the past.
This might sound like a lot but it's just time well spent so you don't just start wasting your hard earned money on things you my not even need.
