Push start the bike in gear. accelerate to about 10mph. Slam on rear brake hard. Try a few times as necessary.

could be a lot of things. sounds minly like you need a valve adjustment. could also be a carb issue or an air leak around the carbs ( carb boots not on all the way or cracked).

It is on the back side of the flywheel for the magneto/generator. You will need to remove the left engine side cover then pull the flywheel. It does take a special puller to get the fly wheel off. Once you get the flywheel off, there are 8 allen bolts that hold it to the back side of the flywheel.

Very likely clutch plates I'm afraid.
Caution here: What oil are you using? If you have used standard Auto oil in the engine, it will have contaminated the plates and this is why they will be slipping. Bike engine oil is a different formulation because the clutch is submerged in oil. What you are describing is a classic result of topping your bike up with standard car engine oil.
If this is the case, you will certainly need to replace the clutch plates.
