CB750 Starter Removal
« on: August 09, 2008, 09:40:31 pm »
I know I've seen some threads on here explaining how you just need to work at it until you find the right angle to pull the starter out and it will just come out.  Well after trying to get a good grip on it for about an hour or two and find that magical angle I finally had a brilliant idea.  There is a threaded hole on the end of the starter in the center that doesn't have a bolt in it.  Simply take one of the 2 bolts that you should have already removed that were holding the starter in place.  Screw the bolt into this unused center hole and grab onto the bolt which will give you an excellent grip to pull the rotor up and back.  The starter just slid right out when I did this so I thought I'd share with the rest of you.

This seemed like a worthwhile tip to be saved for others, so moved it here to Tips and Tricks/Maintenance. Hope you don't mind Gordon.

Yes, you need to remove the cam chain tensioner. It probably wouldn't hurt to have to motor in the position for adjusting the chain before removing it, and to avoid turning the motor while it is removed, just to be safe.
Don't fix it if it ain't broke!
