Thats it I'm going to dinner before I knock this bike over and drag it to the ditch.

The book shows you just take the two bolts out and.....BLAMO the starts in your lap... I cant get it to budge... I have removed the shifter,and the crash bars and that netted me no space. I really don't want to fool with the exhaust in fear of my bad luck snapping a stud, and It dosen't seem to be interfereing.


HELP!! (hope my dinners tasty)

There is an o ring that seals the starter to the case. It can make it a real PITA to get the starter out. There are no other bolts. Just keep working it.
Hold your mouth right. You're okay. However, you may have to remove that rear exhaust stud.
Good Luck

In addition to the o-ring 27 years of exposure to the elements can corrode the short interface of the starter and case outside of the o-ring.

You do have to pull the exhaust stud. I just drop the exhaust as a unit. It is a pita but it won't come out with it in the way.
