you will need to take the bottom skid plate off to access three bolts and also remove the recoil (rope) starter for a couple bolts in there as well.
the starter sits in the bottom of everything and through the years picks up all the crud from the trail. if your old one works barely at all you may get lucky and take it apart and just clean it up .if everything is seized time for a new one. before you take it off ,it is getting juice down to the starter?? when i did mine i took the battery out and siphoned the gas out and laid it on it's side.
