Starter motor

I'm having a hell of a time getting my starter out. The top back bolt is near inaccessible, haven't been able to get it off with many many cuss words thrown at Polaris for even putting the bolt in there like that, truly what the fuck!!!!!!

Obviously not cut out to be a mechanic and failed to read the service manual - all you have to do is remove the outer clutch cover, remove the clutches and the inner clutch cover - no cussing and a simple job kept simple - of course you can cheat if you are dexterous and smarter than the machine - sounds like you are a person I hope to never meet on the trails - garage rage gives rise road rage

My manual has something completely different than what you're seeing. The rear bolt was a bitch, bunch of extensions and wobblies, then it was a low battery and a loose connection. So all that drama and it's running, broke another axle, drag.
