According to the manual I have on the 96 900's ( I'm fairly certain it's the same as a 1000) you remove the two bolts at the rear of the starter and it should pull out. There should be an o-ring on the end of the starter. once you pull it you should see it, it also makes it hard to pull out sometimes. I believe they are 10 mm wrench and one has a wire on it. I saw a starter rebuild kit on ebay for 18.00 US, and they also had the bendix/ intermediate gear for 24.
