I'll bet what your're needing is in the link below. You may not even need any parts. Good luck.
I use an open end wrench to get mine loose, slow but it works.Removed the side fairing, the n/s engine guard and shifter. Now ont removing the exhaust and I've come unstuck...didn't take long.
It seems I can only get one of the nuts securing the headers off, trying to get the socket onto the rest of the bolts and it won't fit the gap between the header and the nut. Am I missing something really obvious or is this a send to the garage kind of deal?
Some say side stand and some say center stand, I did mine on the side stand and had no problem, I even dropped the gear in there and was easily able to retrieve it with my fingers. I think the side stand is easier because it tilts the chain and gear into place a little more.Cheers guys for piling in with the responses.
Quick question as I've seen differing advice. Do I need the bike on the side stand when removing the starter to avoid "droppage" of the gears back into the engine or had they sorted that problem by the time they had made the '84 Gl1200?
Somewhere on this site
? said the 85 to 87 starter just needs to have gearbox swapped
he's done it a few times[/QUOTE/]]
Was mine... Here you go:

Nope, not quite... Buy a 85-87 starter and toss the planetary gearset on the front then replace with the original starters gearset. The planetary gears are almost "bullet proof". I've changed out 2 starters using this method and still have the OEM 25 year old planetary gears. Zero problems and the '84 starts as good as if it came off the factory floor.
