Extra spring

Doh..I pulled my '03 gsxr 600 clutch cable and front sprocket off to do some maintenance - put it back together and now I have this extra spring and it won't go into neutral. Yes I am probably an idiot..



...anyone recognize this spring? Clutch return?

Glad I took it apart though - the sprocket nut was finger tight..!!

Re: Extra spring

The bike it came from might be helpful to make note of here, and/or post it in the model specific subforum.

Part #24? https://www.mrcycles.com/oemparts/a/...8f27003/clutch

Inside the sprocket cover?? I don't see a diagram of how that's assembled in the manual though. It's pretty basic. It supplies the return power for your clutch lever.

You nailed it - got the return spring back in.

I still cant find neutral...my trans may be shot.

Re: Extra spring

...I've had the bike 2 months..who knows how long it was running with the sprocket loose - probably took out a bearing. Weird thing is it shifted fine before I torqued down the sprocket.

Re: Extra spring

Was it in neutral when you torqued it down?

Re: Extra spring

Hmm no it wasn't..should it be? I loosened the sprocket nut and still no neutral...all the other gears feel fine.

...sorry for post in wrong section.

Re: Extra spring

Most put it in neutral. But when you're engine braking, the same forces apply, so I don't think it would damage anything. I really don't know what else to say. What does it feel like if you shift it out of first trying to go to neutral by hand?
