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..!!

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

You nailed it - got the return spring back in.

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

>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.[/quote]

...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.

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.

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?
