Starter motor removal - anyone done it?

this is related to the "speedo gremlin" thread. We have established beyond doubt that the problem lies within the starter motor , and most likely is dust and carbon around the brushes. The manual indicates a hideous job ahead full of pitfalls for young players, including the complete removal of the ABS unit, slave cylinder, final drive and lower sub frame, I am wondering if all that is necessary. If you have done this on an 02 - 05 KRS with ABS, please let me know
