    What about a 2004 Mastiff? Have removed Oil tank then the two starter bolts on a 2004 Mastiff but the starter is still not coming all the way out. Do I need to take the primary case off to get to the starter gear or what?

    On the left side drive bikes I do believe you need to take off the primary cover to get the starter off

    LITTLE HELP HERE:lol:

    Yep on the 04 models you have to remove the outer primary cover to get at the 7/16 bolt that removes the gear/jackshaft. After that then remove the rear bolts.

    Al was spot on back in 2009 . Knotso one more year and it would be a 10 year old thread. Lol
