You don't have to remove the generator, just remove the brush cover (strap band) to inspect. Check for length (compare to ones always available on ebay for example) but if they are less than 1/4 inch or so, time for new ones. Also check that the springs that press the brushes against the armature have tension. Even if everything looks OK, probably wouldn't hurt to clean the armature a bit, and don't forget the oilers.
