Default Starter Spins but No Engage

My 2004 Road King starter usually just spins. It engages occasionally and starts up, but it does NOT engage much more often.

What do you think is wrong?
Is there anything difficult about removing the starter?

Where can I buy parts at a discount (starter or repair kit) etc?

Thanks much for any assistance.
