Any tips for removing the starter?

Starter is starting to go, need to clean it or rebuild it. Looking over the manual it seems like a lot of work just to get to the starter. I tried using just a standard 10mm wrench to get the two bolts holding the back of the starter, but it's too tight for me. Has anyone successfully bypassed the whole tank/air removal in removing the starter? I'm thinking a long 10mm wrench would do the trick, just seeing if you guys have had any luck using other various ways.

1st time I've heard of any starter problems, dose your bike have high mileage or been subjected to unusual service?

I could very well be wrong, but warn valves could make it seem like the starter is weak (besides the battery, which has already been mentioned) When's the last time the valves had their checkup done?

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
