The float charger connection probably has a 5 amp fuse and the wires are only large enough to handle maybe 10 amps. The starter motor needs about 75-100 amps.
So the answer is a definite NO..............
PDwestman answered your question. The energy the charger puts into the battery through those small wires in several minutes can be pulled out by the starter in a few seconds and fry the small wires. I quit using those two little bolts on the seat years ago. The seat is not going to fall off with me sitting on it and I can pop it off any time I want without having to remove those pesky side panels.

The starter won't take any more current through big cables than it can pull through the small stock cables connecting it to the battery. It is like a 1" faucet connected to a 1" or a 6" pipe. It is still just a 1" faucet.
