Check the bolt (and it's isolation) that goes through the starter housing.
The starter itself is dry inside, but to fully remove it, you'd have to remove the left side cranck case cover.
You can remove the starter housing and leave the other parts in the engine, but it's a bit of pain in the a$$ to get it back. It can be done, though. If you only remove the cover, be careful with the part that stays on the engine - pull it out too much, oil will begin to leak to the starter side.
