The connectors are on the cables connected to the starter motor.
Doubt very much that the valves will need re-shimming at 8000miles, most are still in tolerance at 18000 miles.
Have the spark plugs been changed? these should be done every 9k
That and a new battery, see how you get on from there.

It does sound a lot like my dying starter. You can search for my posts and starter. Mine was only difficult on cold starts. The starter leads are under the forward header on the very bottom of the block. They can get nasty as they are face first into road grime.

I'd recommend a basic tune up: plugs, filters (have to pull tank to get to top plug anyway), clean up that starter lead, maybe invest in a Lithium battery - crazy weight savings. There's a good thread about upgrading the ground/ earth lead.

Oh, 12.5 cold is decent voltage for the battery. Should see around 14 when it's running.
