It is the starter because when I hit the button to start I just get a click, and if i tap the starter with something the starter will turn over and start the engine. It used to only happen once in a while, but now it is doing it a lot. I've got a new starter, but didnt want to tear any more apart than I have to.
Ok I figured it out. Remove the gas tank cover. Then remove the gas tank and you can easily get to the starter. Two bolts and one wire and the starter is ready to pull out and replace with a new one. Thanks for the interest.
I am struggling to remove my starter. I took out the two bolts in the back and expect the starter to slide out but it won't. I beat on it using a wooden block about as hard as i thought i should but it seems to be stuck???
I started to take apart the housing/pull start but just know it shouldn't be that hard.
