With the cover off, mount the starter and tighten it down, then take a careful look where the starter head is in relation to the ring gear. Is there a reasonable gap between the starter head and gear? Normally shims or spacers aren't called for. If everything looks OK, you may at the mercy of testing it after it's installed, listen for binding or grinding, or if the starter doesn't fully engage. I'm confident you'll be OK. Honda is famous for exacting standards and things being very service friendly.

SOURCE: How do I remove the seat on an 84 Honda Sabre motorcycle

I have an 85 Sabre and was looking for an answer to this as well. I read the daniels solution. Not sure what Mr. Daniels is smokin but was he dead wrong. First, the helmet lock has nothing at all to do with this procedure. Why he thinks that is beyond me. Also, there is no "lever on the frame" to push forward.

So, after tugging a little here and there on my seat, I stumbled on the procedure. Here it is: 1) Remove the side covers off of each side of the bike. They are only held in place by grommets at 3 locations per side. A small tug at each of the 3 positions will remove them. 2) You will now be able to see a bolt on each side of the bike that secures the seat. Remove them. 3) Now it's technique time. The seat is now only held in place by a plastic tab and a steel tab. The plastic tab is part of the seat bottom at the front of the seat. The steel tab is on the frame of the bike. That steel tab goes into a slot on the underside of the seat. So here we go. Grab the back edge of the seat and firmly pull it rearward and slightly upward at the same time. That will disengage the molded slot on the underside of the seat from the steel tab on the frame. Once the seat has been disengaged from the steel tab, you can angle the seat upward. Once the seat is angled upward about 30 degrees, pull the seat in a rearward direction to disengage the plastic tab on the underside of the seat from the frame of the bike.

Since the air cleaner on a Sabre is underneath the fuel tank, all Sabre owners who do their own maintenace have to know how to remove the seat. One of the fuel tank bolts is hidden under the seat, The other two are on the front sides of the tank.

I have a 03 honda sabre, have taken off the 2 bolts holding, the starter, it in place and have backed it out but it will not lift and slide out from the motorcycle. also what do you mean by drain the...


I'm sorry but I know absolutely nothing about your Sabre. If someone told you to drain the primary, they must have thought you were working on a Harley. On a Harley, you must drain the oil out of the primary so you can remove the outer primary cover to get to the starter jackshaft. It get an answer for your Honda question, you'd be better off to post that on the Honda board rather than the Harley forum. I'd tell you if I knew how but all my experience is with Harleys. Sorry.

Good Luck

Where is solenoid for starter located on 2007 Saber 1100?


If you remove the left side cover you will find the battery. Locate and follow the positive battery cable it will lead you to the starter solenoid. It is square/rectangular in shape and has a second cable that goes down to the engine starter.

Is the only way to fill the coolant for my Honda Shadow Sabre 1100 is by the small cap near the passengers right foot peg?


I filled my radiator with coolant by removing the cover on the right side of the gas tank just behind the handle bars. When you remove the cover, you will see the radiator cap. Remove the cap and begin filling with the appropriate coolant.

Starter contacts need replacing,how do I remove starter


You'll have to remove the starter from beneath the vehicle. There should be three wires that need to be disconnected, and three bolts that mount the opposite end of the starter motor to the drive wheel. Remove these three bolts and pull the starter away from the drive wheel and down to remove. You may see a plastic piece that covers one wire, just pull that out and undo the nut that secures the wire. Make sure you remember how to reinstall the wires-the rest of installation is reverse of removal.
