Primary clutch needs a puller to do it properly. Many have used a bolt and a piece of rod shoved in the hole. But be careful not to damage the threads in the end of the crank as they are hard to fix.

Like Ridin said, either get a clutch removal tool or a bolt. If you go the bolt route, you'll need a 3/4"-16 bolt and something to press against the crankshaft. I have a 96 Sporty 400 as well and just pulled my clutch a few months ago. I used the bolt method and a 3/8" drive 3" extension with a shallow 11mm socket attached to it. The other thing you'll need to do is brace the clutch with a pry bar, regardless if you buy the tool or make your own. Is really a lot easier than it sounds once you do it one!

You don't have to remove the clutch to change the starter! It can be removed from the bottom of the machine. Something you will have to remove is the pull starter.
