If it is anything like the 1200, you drop the exhaust, and then remove the two bolts holding the starter in place. Next you just pull it out of the hole.

Hello randysbaby1. Yes you need to drop the pipes a couple of inches to get the starter out. Also after you drop the pipes and before you pull the starter, put the bike on the side stand so that the drive sprocket doesn't roll into the engine. Theres a load of topics covering this in more detail if you want to do a search.

I got my starter off, 83 Aspencade, without dropping the pipes. It was super tight fit, but I used a deep well 8mm sockect, 1/4" drive to take the two bolts off the starter. It helps to have small hands.

If you have to drop the pipes, make sure you have a couple of spare exhaust studs handy, It' s rare to get them all off without at least one breaking.
