Starter clutch on a Gl1100

How hard is it to change the starter clutch on my 1983 GL1100? Is there an adjustment for the starter chain?

Replacing the starter clutch requires removing and opening the entire engine. It's not an insignificant job.

There is no chain adjustment, as being a chain, it is a known, present length and does not stretch like a belt (at least appreciably).
