Your Yamaha dealer sells a set of three washers/spacers (thin about 1-3/4" across) that probably were never put in your starter. It is a fix for intermittent or non working starters. The dealer should be able to tell you where they go in the starter.

Try the basics first. When was it given a Full service? (Spark plugs, air/oil/fuel filters and oil change. Have you got any warning lights on the dash? Has it been standing unused for a long time as sometimes a bad batch of fuel or old fuel can cause problems. Old fuel can go "Off" and leave a sticky varnish like coating clogging injectors and sticking valves.
Try this. When your fuel tank is down to about quarter full and the engine is cold add a bottle of injector cleaner to the tank. Start the bike and let it idle until it is up to working temperature. Don't 'rev it up' because at idle your getting a stronger mix of cleaner going through the injectors. Once she's warmed up take her out for a good long steady ride then fuel up on the way BACK home.
If this doesn't help you'll need to get a Good bike mechanic to look at it as it could be a worn engine part or an electronics issue.

The battery voltage before running the engine should be about 12 volts. Use a voltmeter, and check the voltage at the battery. After the engine is started, the voltage should go to about 14 volts.

You do not have to. Just close the petcock so no fuel can drain out when removing the tank and keep the tank upright when removing.

Check the speedometer cable. It should be attached to the front wheel hub and go to the speedometer.
