On the 1100 and 1200 Hondas at least, the starter can be removed, cleaned and repaired fairly easily without removing the engine. (I've done it on my 1200.) I just didn't know where the starter clutch was, for which you gave me the bad news. I'll wait for it happen again before I do anything about it. And thanks for the post. I appreciate your help.
I was going by what the manual said. The 86 and 87 1200 has a chain guide and the starter can be removed without pulling the motor. But I can see how leaning the bike could keep the sprocket in reach
