Removing '03 450 starter motor

7 posts in this topic

I'm having a problem with my E-start, when I press the button it just clicks. I'd like to get the starter motor off without taking the side cover etc. off. Does anyone know what size the bolts are?

The battery and battery side terminals are fine. The boot for the starter motor connection was full of dirt. I'm not sure if this may be part of the problem, but I'm assuming if it is clicking the voltage is getting to the starter motor. Unless anyone of you in the know can show me another way, it looks like I'm going to have to drain the oil and pull the side cover off to remove the starter. :)

Normally it wouldn't be a big deal but I just finished putting it all back together, after doing the '04 starter conversion. :)
