Unhappy Crankshaft Sensor on 2007 Cruiser (remove starter?)

This is my first post. I have been reading posts about this, and need a little advice please. I need to replace my Crankshaft sensor. The manual says it is above the oil filter (for the life of me I cant find it). I looked on line and found posts saying that it is under the starter. How the heck can I fit my hands down there to find out? I tried under and over. What are my options? Do I need to remove the starter? If so, how? I tried finding the free o7 repair manual, but must admit I am having no luck. Please help. Thanks.

Where is it?

The free repair manual has been taken away due to copyright laws.

You can get the crankshaft sensor out without taking off the starter according to what I've read but you need very small hands.

As far as taking off the starter, here's an older link with the answer.

Is removing the structural collar difficult, or is it just 5 bolts out?

According to the picture in the Haynes manual it looks pretty easy. Hang on 5 minutes and I'll get a picture up from the book.

Here ya go:

He doesn't want to fix his starter. He needs to move it to get at the Crankshaft sensor.
