Remove Starter 1986 TRX350 Fourtrax

I have removed several bolts in and around the starter, but I cannot remove the starter. Am I missing something??
Any advice would be appreciated.

you have to take off the starter gear cover on the ouside of the engine case. slip of the stater gear and then wiggle the starter out from the other side. the starter is held in by only 2 bolts the starter motor shaft is being held in those gears and doesnt allow any wiggle room till you take the gear off

Yep, like stated above, take the reduction gear cover off the left side of the engine and remove the reduction gear and this will allow you to tilt the end of the starter up and then the starter will pull out. And welcome to the forums.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Thanks for the quick responses!

I spotted those 2 bolts last night. They seem to be a challenge to get to them, but I'm going to attack them tonight.
Thanks Again!

Yeah, just remove those two bolts, remove the reduction gear cover on the right side of the engine and pull out the reduction gear and then lift the end of the starter up and pull it out.

as stated..starter cover off...middle reduction gear out..two bolts on end of starter..starter lifts out from back side. very easy to do...when you go to put it back together...DO NOT LEAVE THE SPACER WASHER OFF THE FRONT SIDE OF THE FLYWHEEL REDUCTION GEAR !.
