Remove Starter From a 1994 Polaris 300 4x4

Hello,

I am new to this and to four wheelers. I have tried to remove the bolts to the starter and I cannot seem to get the starter out. I have removed the rock guard to get to the starter and I don't want to remove the whole side of the 4 wheeler if this is not necessary. I cannot see above the starter and I am wondering if there is a bolt that I have missed. Could I have missed one? I have lightly tapped the starter with a hammer and it still is not budging.

Anyone have some ideas?

Thanks in advance!

If a 300 is like a 400 xplorer you will have to remove the recoil (pull rope) housing to access 2 more bolts that are attached to the starter.

On my 94 sportsman had a bolt behind the pull starter also. As much of a pain in the butt as it is to get it out it was 5X worse putting the new starter in on my sportsman.

2 bolts behind the recoil cover and if you have a clutch puller, it's easier to get to with the clutch cover off. Even with the skid plate off, it's still a pain trying to get to the bolts. I can do it a lot quicker by leaving the skid plate on and just taking of the clutches and cover

That is the best way to do it if you have the clutch puller.
