My starter got wet , probably corroded insides , I want to remove and clean , however it appears I need to remove clutch to get at two bolts. Has anyone done this and how does clutch come off?

I am brand new to forum and think its great!! Hope someone can help?

thanks Big Dog! I ordered one today - anything I should know about clutch removal I have never taken one off before , however I am willing to try - don't want to break anything. Thanks again from an "Old Dog".

I completed disassembly by pulling clutch to get at the bolt behind the flywheel of the clutch. In order to get starter out however, I also had to remove the exhaust manifold as starter would not fit between cooling hose and exhaust manifold. Reassembly was a cinch and I was told clutch was to be torqued to 55 lbs. Also to remove exhaust manifold it was more expedient to remove exhaust valve assemblys. I found that mine were very dirty and carboned up which surprised me cause my machine has only 1500 miles on it and I run only Polaris synthetic VES injection oil. I run regular gas however , 87 octane. Should I be running something different for better performance and maintenance? Hope to hear from some on this. Thanks a bunch.

Thanks for the info. This is my first machine with this VES technology and the capability of using reg. or premium gas as the motor is supposed to adjust timing automatically to type of gas used. Is there anything particularly good to clean the VES valves with? I just used carb cleaner and varsol and scraped and sanded with 220 grit sandpaper until clean and smooth. Thanks again.
