Yea, most folks do it with the bike on the side stand, helps keep the gear and chain in position.

Hi bagmaster
thats what I was thinking off as I didn't want to lose them and make it a bigger job than expected.

:waving:You can remove the starter on the center stand but put it on the side for reinstallation as this will center the gear and make installation much easier.

----------------------------
Voltage is low if your meter is correct, or your connections are suspect. A 12 VDC battery must be fully charged since the starter draws 100 Amps for 1-2 seconds. Charge the battery, a fully charged battery should last 3 weeks at 40 F, if not it may be suphating. Too log on a tender will also kill it if the voltage and amps do not shut off. Make sure battery is good before ripping a starter out.
