Not sure about the Trailblazer but on most Polaris machines you just remove the recoil cover and the old starter gear can be wiggled out and the new put in. Make sure to watch for the thrust washer(s) if any.

Just reread your original post OP. I was thinking of the 330 engine. Looks like on yours you WILL have to remove the clutches and pull the starter from the other side of the engine to remove the Bendix. I'd forgotten about that starter being under the engine on those 2 strokes unlike many other Polaris machines. Here's a video. Real PIA to get to that one compared to others.
