No idea on an Xevo but the starter is on the LH side just above the variator, so if you have the underseat access panel you might be able to do it through there.

Xevo 250 access panel is quite reasonable - and you can get to quite a bit of the engine... Xevo 400 is tiny - chum is suggesting that I need to remove the entire seat. I was hoping someone was going to tell me that they'd successfully managed to remove the starter engine without going through that headache.... indeed the starter is on the LH side above the variator - 2 nuts and the wire and that's it but apparently there is a o-ring that has to be treated carefully...

Well took off the saddle... 5 hours to get that thing off , get the new starter motor in (easyparts gave me one that was too long - had to machine the bolt sockets in a bit to get it to fit) and put everything back together. Starts and runs nicely now but still not perfect - the license plate light , rear lights (not brake lights - they work fine) , horn , luggage light and front lights (not dim light or full headlight) are all gone. Now I'm hoping it's just some fuses - and the workshop manual indicates that but as I just have a download I can't tell from the resolution (page 48 of the workshop manual) what else could be on those circuits. Thanks as usual for any help.

That may just be the bulb, it may be missing completely as they are often removed so the battery doesn't flatten if you leave the seat open.
Don't forget to update your sig so we can tell what model of bike you're working on. It still says X9 125.
