Thought I would join this knowledgeable group to find an answer.
I have a 1990 Fourtrax 300 TRX300FW that is lightly used and never abused.
In the past 3 or 4 years, I have had the starter stop working 3 times and took it to local repair shop, presumably for brushes. Each time they fix it for around $50 and each time they say they just had to clean the starter, no brushes. The $50 is probably about 1 hour labor, maybe the minimum charge. Now its time to do it again and I figure that if they can clean it, I can also. I don't see any way to get that starter off without dissambly of some of the engine/transmission housing because it sits down in a depression and no room for that much movement. That sure looks like more that an hours work all told. Am I missing something or is there a trick to this?

Before you tear into it get an owners manual! It will help not sure but price a new starter or go ahead and replace the brushes because it sounds like you r doing this to often. on my 400ex the manual says nothing about taking the motor apart to get to starter. Check on back side of starter for bolts

Welcome to the forums!! Before tearing into it are you getting power down to the starter?
