You need to make the adjustment screw and lock as loose as possible first. Then pull your clutch in and look where the pin is, there is a slot on the lever where the cable can slide down (and the pin with it). If you can't get it loose enough with the adjustment screw you may have to loosen the controls and slide them in just a little, or disconnect the cable at the other end.
At about the one minute mark on this video they show another process that will work, disconnecting the lever from the bar and turning it over. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTcBDi8-7AY

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.

You are telling me you have had trouble with this starter for six years? ... and the dealer told you ... what?
You need to seriously see the Yamaha certified repair shop. You likely have major damage to your fly wheel, your starter and probably your electric system after this much abuse.
Please get it fixed so you can enjoy your Yamaha Classic.
Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

Charge battery to full, start in neutral, still clicks? Bad ground, or bad connection. Jump starter solenoid with screwdriver,etc. if motor turns over the relay is bad. Chaz Moto DC

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.
