Drain primary fluid, remove outer primary cover.
On the bolt holding the starter gear on, flatten the tab on the lack washer, and remove the bolt.
I use a flat blade screwdriver behind the gear, and hold it out to engage the teeth of the clutch shell to keep it from turning while undoing bolt.
If you're completely removing starter, undo the wiring going to it.
If you just need to move it a little out of the way, you might be able to leave the wires attached.
Remove two bolts holding starter to back side of inner primary cover.
Pull starter out, turning as necessary to clear.

How do you remove starter on 1986 softail custom

Hi Anonymous, it's pretty simple and sraight forward. Start by removing the seat and disconnecting and isolating the battery negative cable. Then remove the chrome end cap of starter, remove bracket that bolts to transmission and the battery cable on the starter and the green relay wire. WARNING!!!!! loosen and unthread completely but do not remove the two long starter thru bolts/studs. With both hands grab the starter on both ends and remove carfully, you do not want the starter to come apart, which happens all the time very easily. Good luck
