Default Changing a starter......Big job?

I bought a chrome starter for my '07 RKC. It's due for delivery tomorrow, Wednesday, October 4th. Is it a pretty good job to remove the stock starter and replace it with a chrome one, or should I let the dealer do it? I know about disconnecting the battery first.

Ya know what your going to hear a lot of?????????? Get yourself the manual, got one but in the shop or I'd take a look. Cant think its a killer though. Spend the 60 bucks for a manual and spin a few wrenches.

couldn't see in your pic if you have true duals or still have the crossover pipe cuz your leg is in the way.
If you have true duals, it's a 15 minute job to change out the starter. I know cuz that's how long it took me to pull my starter to get to my vehicle speed sensor that is beneath my starter.
If you still have the crossover pipe, then you have to pull your exhaust before even thinking about getting your starter. Actualy that's not that difficult either.
Forget the dealer, do it yourself!
just my opinion

Really like that sig pic with the shifter and horn on the right

Like DZLDR said it's an easy job if you've got true duals. If not getting that exhaust out of the way takes a while. Remember to wd-40 the slip ons to get them to "slip" off.

Be sure to tighten down the battery ground when you reassemble it.

There's a Service Bulletin on the 2006-2007 starter mounts for the Touring models. Since you changing the starter, only the torque changes would apply:

Install starter. Clean starter fastener threads. Apply LOCTITE
243 (blue) to threads of starter fasteners. Tighten
fasteners to 25-27 ft-lbs (33.9-36.6 Nm).
7. Update the starter mounting bolt torque to 25-27 ft-lbs
(33.9-36.6 Nm) in the:
● 2006 Dyna service manuals
● 2007 through 2009 Dyna, Softail and Touring service
manuals

Can anyone confirm that the High Performance Starter 1.4KW (31335-03A) will fit a 2008 Ultra Classic? The description on the website says:

Fits '94-'06 Softail® and Touring, '94-'05 Dyna® and '99-'00 FXR models.

It doesn't mention 08.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I want to be sure before I order it.

Thanks.
