To remove the starter, first disconnect the battery. Then remove everything from the right side of the bike so that you can gain access to the starter.

Go to the left side of the bike and drain the primary and remove the cover. Remove the small bolt that holds the "starter jackshaft" on and remove the jackshaft.

Go back to the right side of the bike and disconnect the battery cable from the starter and the small wire from the starter relay. Remove the two large bolts that hold the starter on and remove the starter.

Good luck
