SOURCE: brushes in starter
Yes. It can be done. The starter motor is located outside the engine block so it should be easy to take it out. from there, you may disassemble the starter motor and replace the carbon brush as you wish.

Did the old battery not have this problem? Need more of a description of the problem though.
Does the battery turn the motor over acceptably, and it just won't fire? Or does it seem to lack the current to turn the motor over?
For potential battery conditions, check voltage at battery, then check voltage at starter--if you lose too much, check the yellow triple wire connector right by the battery for corrosions/breaks, etc. Many have had trouble with this little connector set and most opt to replace the connector completely with a solid hard wiring.
There are many possibles on hard starts- if a physical problem, like the battery appears to not have enough power, make sure you've got good oil (to reduce friction of the innards, uses less power to crank). Also, make sure there's not a build up of fuel in a cylinder that causes a HYDRO LOCK--making it almost impossible for the starter to turn the motor over.
Start from NEUTRAL, not from geared with clutch lever held in--

As stated in the previous reply, it has a sight glass. The sight glass is on the right side of the case, near the fill hole. If looking at the fill hole, look just below it and to the right about 2 inches. You may need to use a small flat blade screwdriver to turn the wiper arm for the glass, so that it cleans it off for a better view.

the starter is the tensioner, there is an internal besides that as well. This is one of the most difficult out there that is for sure. You may have to rotate the engine or starter gear subtly to get everything to line up. Let me know if you have any other concerns.
