A K1100 with ABS would be the ABSII, I'd say.

In which case, getting the starter out ain't quite that simple Sad  The battery, ABS unit and the bracketry which holds all that "stuff" needs to be outta the way first. The starter motor comes out rearwards and CAN be a right bu66er to shift, initially. AMHIKT Razz 

Good luck!!!

hi thanks I thought as much I had a quick look at the manual (Clymer) with the k1100 supliment in it but it just goes on non abs so it was quiet simple at the time take out battery undo two bolts and wala but then when I looked at mine I figured that either one or all would have to be removed Sad  supoze I best get to it it wont fix it self:D

Approach it systematically and you'll be OK.

Once you have the battery, coils, overflow bottle and ABS unit out of the way, you'll be left with a frame attached to the footrest hangers. Be careful when you remove the battery tray, it's mounted on rubber-like gadgets which have a habit of separating.  Disconnect the hangers and unbolt the frame. It's a sort of "H" shaped thing with a double cross-bar.

You might be lucky and not have to actually remove the frame to get the starter out. The Starter itself is held by two bolts at the back, be sure to clean and re-attach the earth cable when you re-assemble!

The starter has an "O" ring in the nose and this can make it difficult to pull the starter. You might have to get a bit brutal with it.

While you're in there, you could take the opportunity to pull the alternator and have a check of the monkey nuts Laughing.

Use lots of copper grease or blue Loctite when you bolt everything back together again, just in case you ever need to go back in.

Enjoy affraid
